Roy Wickrama is a mechanical designer since 2005 where he is an expert user of Autodesk Inventor (with Autodesk vault professional). Having landed in Canada (Vancouver) in 1988, he was eager to be working as a mechanical engineering design professional despite he was a machinery and equipment maintenance engineer before coming to Canada. Took a multitude of part time CAD and VB programming courses. He also took BCIT - Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Design Technology in 2003.
He is a hard worker and continuously upgrade his CAD design and drafting skills and find solutions to work faster, smarter and free of errors.
His Autodesk Inventor skills is excellent: Always explore how to create better sketches, consider modelling with design changes and detailing friendly. Use iLogic rules to ease the process of modelling and creating production drawings with accuracy. Use Autodesk Inventor forum to gain more skills.
With his fully functional home office setup, he is looking forward to helping the design and manufacturing industries, mechanical design professionals and consultants to achieve their project or production goals.
