I have 12 Years Experience as a mechanical/electro-mechanical CAD Designer in the Defense and Aerospace Industry. My skill set includes 3D modeling, 2D drawings, and photo-realistic rendering among others. During my stay in the defense industry, I gained a great amount of knowledge of MIL standards and specs, as well as GD&T usage and callouts. My preferred modeling software is Creo, which I find can handle certain complex geometries better than Solidworks (which is the modeling software I have used for almost my entire career). The other thing I like about Creo is that it will work natively with just about any file type, and can also save out as Solidworks, Catia, Siemens NX, and some Autodesk file formats. This way I am not restricted to working with only one file type, or working with .stp files where you can't see the model tree to glean information about how a model was constructed. I have also been using AutoCAD for my entire career. I recently have gone back to school to finish my bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, which is what has led me into the freelance market. I am excited to see how I can help you make your products better!
