Are there any positions suitable for drafters/CAD Technicians in accident reconstruction/engineering investigation?

I have had the same question during the past few years. I never did find out how the accident reconstruction data is processed and by whom.

Thank you for bringing this back to my attention, I would like to find out more about the process if I can.

I would expect 3d scanning to be "the way" to do accident reconstruction. But, those machines can get expensive (more expensive than total stations, which aren't chump change). So, I'm sure smaller police departments could barely afford a total station, let alone a 3d scanner........

Thanks there Joe!

I was at a museum today, wasn't checking into the forums.

Hope you have had a good day at work!
