My 2012 End of Days, CAD Bucket List

I had a random thought the other day. I was thinking of CAD things I would like to posses or accomplish before the end of the world occurs this year. Everyone needs a bucket list, and only CAD nerds like myself need a CAD bucket list for the end of the world. So, in no particular order:


  1. A new workstation: I need something that was made this decade. I’m thinking a HP z800 or a Dell t5500. Definitely would like some SSD drives, the whir of a hard drive is something I can live without during the final moments before the lava melts it completely.
  2. New iPad. I’ll need this to use the zombie tracker app.
  3. A weekend trip to London to have tea with Al Dean, Editor-in-Chief of Develop 3D Magazine. I’m not sure why, but he seems like someone who would survive well into the 2nd half of the apocalypse.
  4. A license of Keyshot. I need to render better bunker images, this will do it.
  5. A trip to San Francisco to visit the Autodesk Gallery, but only if Shaan Hurley gives me a personal tour. I’m sure there is stuff I could use here.
  6. I need a Mac Book. I do, I really do. I just don’t feel right bringing a PC laptop into the coffee shop anymore. I stick out like a sore thumb. I don’t want to draw attention to myself while making last minute preparations.
  7. I always wanted an Alienware laptop, this may come in handy when they actually do come.
  8. Some t-shirts from I think this will make me stick out more in the coffee shop with my PC laptop, but so what. When I turn into a zombie, I want to be wearing one of these.
  9. A short jaunt to Sarasota to tour RND Automation before rapture. For sure, this will be the central hub where skynet builds more robots. Knowing the layout will be beneficial later.
  10. The last one is my secret for now. I’ll post it just before total annihilation.

  1. Love it!!

    Al Dean would definitely be one who’d survive into the second half of the apocalypse! He’d probably have some of the good stuff to pass the time as well. 🙂

  2. Any time you want a brew, let me know. I’ll get the kettle on. And sharpen up the shovel. Just in cases.
