2D Autocad Draftsman turned 3D Mechanical Designer! Worked in the Architectural Stone field utilizing AutoCAD for 5 years before the economy forced me into a field I "thought" I didn't want to go into---Mechanical Design using 3D modeling. I have now found my calling and absolutely LOVE 3D modeling using SolidWorks & Solid Edge
