Architecture/Design/Other for myself. At current position I use it for office layouts, a new commencement podium, custom furniture, building planning and I might use it on current task of plaza refresh design. I try to use it at every opportunity.

All but Architect although sometimes I do model buildings and other structures for construction. I’m not an architect, though.

I think doing it by Profession or Person may miss something. A lot of people probably use the software for buildings, construction, historical models, etc. etc. but may not be an architect. A lot may use it for their home projects, yet not ready to call themselves “Woodworker”.

Steel frame buildings. Design, engineer & construct. And all the drawings to go with.


Cool. In my early days I worked on a lot of light industrial and commercial steel buildings for an architect in Hawaii and others later in California ( a lot of Garco buildings all different). The plans from the manufacturers were always pretty dry CAD but well done and super functional.

Engineering design (piping and mechanical equipment) and precise sketching to convey ideas to clients, sometimes including structural, architecture and electrical in supplement to mechanical.

Technical illustrations for a technical book that I wrote in the last company where I worked before retiring.

Home projects in my former house.

Home projects illustrations for relatives.

Fabrication drawings and templates for acrobatic kites (2 lines and 4 lines) as well as single line kites. These are personal kites, not for a business.

Very varied!

I’m a Stargate fanatic. So most (almost all) of my work is evolved around that theme.
