    OCF Drafting Club

    Well I was looking at all the clubs one day and thought hmmm... I don't really fit into any of them. So I decided to make my own! Well just any old club by myself would be useless so this one has to be worth while. I decided to go with the drafting club as that is this is what I do for a job. I am mainly thinking CAD and bored but if anyone else has other drafting expireince, feel free to post. Once you reply, You will be added to the list and can put your number in your sig!

    Information I would like to know... none of the fields are required if you don't want to answer the questions

    1) What field you are in-
    ...architectual, mechanical, electrical

    2) How you draft-
    ...CAD, Inventor, Bored etc.

    3)Where you work-
    ...city,state and/or company

    4)Any other special information you would like to share.



    Feel free to PM me or post as to any suggestions you may have

    1) Field: Construction
    2) How: Autodesk DWF Composer
    3) Where: Rescue Concrete, Inc. (California)
    4) Other: I hate digitizers as well as 'black paper' CAD drawings. White backgrounds for the win!

    Most of the time I'm measuring other peoples' drawings (architects, etc.) so I spend most of my time in DWF Composer, but every now and then I bust open AutoCAD when needed =P

    1) Not in a field yet. Will probably go into marketing and/or product design
    2) Alibre Xpress, Milkshape 3D, and Eagle PCB
    3) A really nice local machine shop is about to hire me because I know how to work in Alibre Xpress and they like my machining work.
    4) I've never taken any CAD, 3D design, or even machining related classes. I've learned all of it the hard way on my own since I was about 12.

    Ok looks as though no one else will be joining for a while sooooo... lets get a little conversation started.

    First of all, do you like it when I assign numbers or do you want to pick your own???

    Secondly, I want to describe Promis to you as it is an awesome tool that is revoultionizing the way they design panels at my work. But first, It is late and I have a soccer game and my birthday party tommorrow(I guess that would be today now) so a little sleep would be nice. Probably won't be on the rest of today so don't expect a response.

    So anyways appears as though I am not that popular.

    O well, it hasn't stopped me from geeky things in the past

    Promis... well basically it takes ACAD and creates a database for all the "blocks" which are now called symbols. When you drop a symbol on the page, it knows what part number it is and can associate with the related schematic/panel layout view. Then when that is all done, you draw the wires and the computer automatically assigns the wire numbers. You can then choose to print all the wire labels and panel tags without re-typing them all. Finally, when you finish the panel, all the parts are automatically ordered after accessing our parts database.

    Now doesn't that save time.

    It is easier to explain when you are looking at the program But really it does help a lot because I onl know basic CAD and I have no knowledge of electrical symbols but I can draw panels

    So this is a pretty cool program and we should have it fully impelamented in a couple of weeks.

    O yea, to me tommorrow!!!

    1) What field you are in-
    Mechanical Engineering (student still)... tho looking for automotive field down the road

    2) How you draft-
    CAD (solidworks, a little autocad..and mess around with a few others)

    3)Where you work-

    I'm working for a tobacco company as a sort of intern for mulitple semesters, but I don't do drafting there, more along the lines of IE work.

    1) mechanical

    2) wow I have used so many. AutoCAD, inventor, Rhino, solidworks, CATIA (on a strictly hush hush basis) theres several others but those are the main ones. I use rhino more often than the others. I've also done a lot by hand. and I've discovered that hand drawing a gear tops out as the worst thing in the world to draw.

    3) Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton Washington.

    4) Im six foot four, dodn't that suck

    (run:/Dancingobnoxiously/) Yeah more people have come

    Wow! I am surprised at the number of students here. I figured I was only one of a handful that draft but it looks there are a lot more.
