Mr. E. Barnes has extensive experience in the field of mechanical drafting and design technology.
A. I designed a hat box to accommodate different sizes in Solidworks. The maximum lip dimensions were put into an Excel spreadsheet and I was given an image to trace. By accident the box also turned out to be suitable to be converted to fit a Star Vader helmet.
B. I designed a SAM – sniffer (sensor) in 3D AutoCad. It is a detector for a dirty radiation bomb.
I use AutoCad for 2D work, and SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Pro/E, Creo for 3D.
I keep up to date with software by practicing
I do everything myself. I don’t feel comfortable giving work to someone else because it may not turn out to be correct. I would rather make and correct my own mistakes.
