I firmly believe that your CAD software shouldn't limit your creativity or productivity. I love helping people realise their amazing ideas by getting them over the CAD learning hump. I am pragmatic and business focused. No CAD work should take any longer than it really has too, and all CAD work should benefit its end customer. I enjoy helping cus...tomers to get the best out of their Investment in their Autodesk software by helping them to map, optimise and automate their workflow. More

How do you collaborate on your 3D CAD models? Back in the good ‘ol days collaboration was easy. The design office was a sea of drawing boards. Anyone wanting to see progress on a project could simply walk up and down the design office, peeking over the drafter’s shoulders. But, with the advantages of CAD there are some limitations. The computer becomes a black box. We have lost the ability to gain...
