I would apply, but was offered position already
I have 15 + years autocad and design
If I hear of anyone I will surely pass it on
and for some reason position I was offered falls through I will apply

Been using autocad since high school in the '80s and still use it today. Not sure it's fun, but it pays the bills.

AutoCad 2010 here with another automated program running within. No need for Revit in my line yet. All out-put is 2D anyway.

I do like the Inventor, but have only the ability to navigate and do some minor work with it,
need lots more practice and training on that part
Strange how been doing autocad since about 91, started out on vs 8 using a floppy disc for daily back up and now, wow lots of changes
now can even do touch screen with it

also surprising to hear so many people on here know autocad and use it daily. I am self taught and guide by some other employees for my training, didnt take it in school, but then again when I was in school we were still drawing on the board with lead and ink as i did for many years at Dover

I was a sophomore in h.s. when I first used it, 1985-86. Took 15 minutes to get it going and about 15 minutes to shut it down.

Autocad? Ya'll still use that? Autodesk Inventor is where it's at!

Only if you have a setup that will run it.... and if a person uses it enough to remember all the steps...

I am a drafter, 13 years now.... using AutoCAD 2012 currently.... have had some Inventor training several years ago.... My typical projects doesn't really utilize inventor type programs so I didn't really retain the training.

I have been looking for other means lately.... this sequester crap is a threat to my current employment.

Wow...started w/ R12 in 94 and progressed through to 2007. AutoDesk has a program for people who are unemployed or in school can download education versions of their software with a three year education license. I'm teaching myself Revit but like jb3 not sure it's fun anymore, beside's I've only got 7 more weeks of student teaching and I'm certified.

...back when drafting & engineering was an art form.

I was denied a job while in college, since I didn't know AutoCAD (Microstation was cheaper to license at CBU). So I got a job with a land development firm, and learned AutoCAD proficiently in about 2 weeks.

A couple years later, I went to work for the first place that turned me down. It took another 2 weeks to be proficient making 3D models. Since I quit that company, I don't (need to) use it nearly as often, but I can still make a helluva model ;)

I had remembered that many of us here were draftsman, no this is not my employer.

I work in Structural Engineering now, mainly use Revit 2013-2012 (in place here since 06, version 3) and Microstation. Have been through the Int. and Advanced coursework for Revit. Though I had/have used Autocad for many years, and was once even considered fluent in Lisp.

We actually run the Building Design Suite Ultimate from Autodesk, which gives us Inventor and the remainder of their products, I just cant seem to take time to learn them all.
The fun for me is attempting to take this Cadillac program and make it profitable for us.

Started working in 1988 at Dupont, in the blueprint room.
Nothing like the smell of changing out the 250# Ammonia bottles.
Worked up to board work in 89, been on CAD since 87 in school.
IBM Versacadd was my first program.

Know the feeling, when I was hired by company in Memphis, the guy didnt want anyone that did autocad, wanted a pencil guy
He was the engineering manager, so I did board work for him while others did work in autocad,
that lasted less than a year and he gave in and told me to go ahead and learn autocad, so my training was school of hard knox as well, but worked out, was there for 13 years
I did some freelance work after that but had to give it up too and go back to the work for someone else league and have been doing that since, guess goining on 8 years now

guess we are ancient
have seen solidworks used in fabrication, was a bit difficult, but then again that was back in the 90's
I would love to learn some 3d and get to where I am decent at it
I have inventor on my computer at home, did a little with it but not enough to say I can do it
