Mostly have been on the software development side of CAD software, which over time has provided some insight into using CAD programs. Have written NURBS Curve & Surface, B-Rep Solid Modeling, Dimensioning, and Numerical Control packages.
Mostly wrote the CAM software that analyzed the CAD geometry and generated tool paths in a neutral format, which was then converted to G-Code and APT CNC programs, but that was a long time ago. :-)
Quite interested in getting up to speed on modern CAD/CAM technologies.
Interested in exploring all aspects of 3D CAD/CAE/CAM techniques, especially for boats, jewelry, vehicles, furniture, et.al. At present looking into carving or printing wax models for jewelry lost wax casting.
