I went to school as a mechanical engineer, and got interested in 3D modeling, specifically the SDRC I-DEAS CAD/CAM software system. This interest got me my first job working for a CAD/CAM reseller doing pre and post-sales support. I was lucky to be involved in 3D printing in the early 90s - for a demo of rapid prototyping, I modeled the mouse from my HP-UX CAD workstation and it was rendered via stereolithography. I still have that model, but across the years I stopped using CAD and moved to systems administration. Now that 3D printing has become so reasonable, I'm getting back into it, and it's pretty awesome to see how far things have come. I hope I can ramp up my 3D modeling skills to where they used to be as I've got a whole bunch of ideas that I hope to make.
