Have 0ver 40 years experience in manufacturing and over 20 years in CAD. I use AutoCAD for electrical diagrams and patent drawings. I use Geomagic Design by 3D Systems for 3D Models which can be saved as SolidWorks & Inventor. I use this software because I feel it is as good or better software than SolidWorks & Inventor.
I have two years of Engineering plus I hold a two year Drafting Technical Diploma plus I hold a number of Autodesk AutoCAD Training Certificates.
The majority of my CAD work over the last 21 years has been Product Design and Mechanical Design
