Why am I here and what am I doing?

Why am I here?  Well, the purpose of this blog is to talk about the cool work related places I go to or to talk about the interesting subjects I come across that I want to explore more about.  Typically, this will be mechanical engineering subjects but it could also be a highlight of the projects I work on.  However, I can’t share all of them due to I.P.  No, I’m not referring to the acronym for finding the webhost site for your webcam.  I work with manufactures, research and development firms, and entrepreneurs.  Some of the latter can be very close to the vest with their baby or as most would call, their Intellectual Property.  However, when I can share, I will.

When I mentioned earlier the cool places I go to…one of those places is a yearly conference that’s usually located somewhere more warmer than here in New England.  The CAD software I primarily use is called SOLIDWORKS. Every year they have this very popular event called SOLIDWORKS World.  I’ve been attending this event since 2011 and look forward to going every year.  I also run a user group; the Connecticut SOLIDWORKS user group to be more direct or CONNSWUG.  This user group gives me access to the most interesting topics (work related wise) and some of the most interesting people I’ve ever met.  Both of these events are a must for me.  Nothing better than hanging out with like minded engineering types where I can only learn more.  That’s a win-win all day long!

I truly hope you get something out my blog just like I do with my user group, the conference I attend, and the people I meet.

Have a great day, talk soon!

It’s about time!

Welcome to the first ever BLOG post for Digital Detail & Design, aka 3D!  I waffled for almost a year to get this site done.  The web guy I hired is very happy that I finally went public with the site too (‘cuz he gets his paid) but he’s a good guy and was very patient with me, sending regular emails, prompting me for attention, even when I was at my busiest moments.

As an independent contractor, I get busy and then I get very busy!  Very busy means I’m doing design stuff and business stuff; late nights are common during those moments.  I don’t have a secretary, I don’t have an office manager, I don’t even have an IT guy.  It’s all me but I’m looking to grow so someday I can have those people on my team, as well as a few designers, maybe even electrical engineer too.  Ahhh to dream.  Well, at least I’m having fun getting there and if I don’t ever achieve that dream, I can honestly say I did the best I could with the means I have.

So, as the days get shorter in sunlight and with Jack Frost doing more than nipping you on your nose, please follow along while I slip and slide my way thru projects, people, clients and the cool things I get to see and do.  I promise to spare you the boring details of invoicing at 1 in the morning expect to say fire up the coffee pot!

Do what you love, love what you do!
