Hello world!

Welcome to the Mechanical Advantage blog.

Here you will find tips and tricks, tutorials, and commentary related to the CAD and CAM industry. Most of the focus will be on Autodesk based tools, but posts may stray into other packages from time to time. You will also see topics related to computers and technology in general. From time to time you will also see guest bloggers here as well. I've been lucky enough to meet a lot of smart people in this industry that I now also get to call friends.

Over the years I've worked in different industries including designing commercial playground equipment, HVAC sheet metal design, metal fabricated components, CNC programming, and as an applications engineer for an Autodesk reseller. A lot of what I plan to post here are solutions to common questions and issues I have worked on over the years.

I hope you will make this site a regular visit. If you have any topics are areas that you would like me to cover, leave them in the comments section and I'll see what I can do.
