Confessions of a CAD User

I couldn’t help it… these texts from my real good friend who just started a new job using “another” CAD software are hilarious. Just read for your amusement. Who can guess what CAD software he is using?


Nailed it. U have to be a gd programmer to use it. Do u want to change the background color? Options, system colors, color schemes, dark background, select… But wait, that only saves for current session, if u want **** to save that option everytime u open it, u have to create a system color file in the configurator editor, then add a configuration file for background color and point it to the color file, then export your config file to your file.. *****, i got lost and just realized im not sure this is right, but he showed me how to do it, and he thinks this is awesome. Cause if we upgrade, or go to different job, u can take ur config file with u! Isnt that awesome!

This next line is perfect…

I love how ppl that have only used 1 cad program try to sell u on how its the best one ever.

Oh, i said, this is not intuitive, and he said, it is if u have been doing it for a long time, and i said, thats not what intuitive means, thats experience.

I have been reading instructions he wrote on how to put stuff into windchill, the drawing management system, and my head hurts. I struggled w solidworks too at first. Ill get this eventually, or get fired, but starting over sucks. I’m working on stuff designed and built in germany, some of the software has been translated, but im using a german keyboard…, y and z r swapped, and delete is enft or sonething, and some of the buttons are ja and nein, instead of yes and no. So been a rough 2, weeks for this hillbilly dumbass.
