I thought I will try myself as a "freelancer" to see how online engineering works, but I still have a job. :)
I am a mechanical engineer and a product developer. My field of expertise is plastic part design. I have designed different plastic products (parts and assemblies) for the automotive industry (traditional mold, in-mold or overmold designs, 2K molded parts as well as in-mold film design). I also have experience in designing sheet metal parts, deep drawn or machined metal parts as they often comes with automotive products.

At the beginning of my engineer carrier I created designs for food industry. It was a general design of tanks for breweries and machines for food processing firms made of stainless steel. I hope I get the chance again here.

I work (and live) in Hungary, however I had/have the chance to work with foreign engineers.
I have 18 years of product design experience, I use Catia V5 for my daily work, but as a freelancer I cannot afford to use it, yet.
I'm curious If I had the chance to earn the money for that. :) That would be great to have my own Catia license, because with that CAD system everything is possible to be made, but it would mean higher hourly rate too.
Until that, I'm going to use free CAD softwares, like FreeCAD, which looks quiet good for mechanical designs. And it can generate IGES, STP/STEP or STL files in a neutral CAD format, which is good for the client, and so the work comes cheaper too.

Anyhow, let's create something from nothing!
