My First CAD Job. Started out making Ladder Logic Diagrams in AutoCAD R12, eventually moved to AutoCAD R13, then AutoCAD R14. By the time AutoCAD R14 came out, I was designing parts and sub-systems for Currie's Palletizers and Case Elevators. Shortly after AutoCAD R14 was released, I discovered Autodesk Inventor R5. I began learning it on my own, and then began designing parts and assemblies in 3D from there. By the end of my time at this Company, I was working with Autodesk Inventor 10, and AutoCAD R14.
When Currie Machinery Company's owners sold the company, this was my first "Semiconductor Industry" job. I learned the ropes from the company's Senior Mechanical Engineer, and was working with Autodedk Inventor 2007, 2008, and 2009 before the Company's Board of Directors decided to replace the CEO (My Current Boss) with a new one, and he cleaned out the entire Engineering Department, myself included.
Started out here as the Sr. Mechanical Engineer's apprentice, learned the entire product line, and when he passed away, took over as the Sr. Mechanical Engineer/Designer. Currently using Autodesk Inventor 2015 Professional.
