Interview with Mr. L. Bublik

  1. What kinds of clients do you serve?

    As a mechanical engineer I work with any individuals or companies that need my special design expertise.

  2. What was the most interesting CAD project that you ever worked on? What made it interesting?
    What challenges did you face?

    I recently had a project for treatment tables for hospitals with special design features that were very interesting to work on. Challenges were to find special electric motors and switches for the tables.

  3. Of the software tools that you use, which is your favorite and why?

    SolidWorks is the best and my favorite because it is solid modelling and you can see right away what kind of product you are designing.

  4. What trends are you observing in the market for CAD services? How have these trends affected you, and how are you responding to them?

    Clients try to pay less because of the slow job market; they want more work for less money so I have to accept any reasonable offer.

  5. What do you like about working as an interim CAD draftsman or external CAD consultant working on a time-bound project?

    I like working free-lance because I can have a more flexible schedule.

  6. Have you ever provided CAD consulting services remotely, either via phone, the Web or email?
    Do you use any screen sharing tools (like Webex, Skype, or GoToMeeting), and are they effective?
    What kinds of questions and problems could you tackle remotely?
    Are there any issues that you feel are better handled face-to-face?

    I use Skype for remote meetings and also the phone. Skype is good for design work questions because I can share my screen and resolve problems. If I have customers in my area I meet with them in person.
