What's your day job?

Post by Lee » Mon May 22, 2017 10:50 pm

What do you do besides print plastic stuff?

I'm a BIM Manager for an electrical engineering firm in the SF Bay Area. Grew up drafting, been managing for about 7 years now. I also mess around with website developing, nothing serious though, just something to fiddle around with while helping out communities of hobbies that I'm a part of.

I'm retired now - a man of leisure, although I seem to work harder and longer now that I'm retired, than I did when I was working. I had a varied series of careers in various industries; Initially an Aircraft Instrument (Electronics) Fitter (in the Royal Australian Air Force), then a Linux Computer System Administrator, then an IT Manager, and and lastly an IT Project Manager.

Now in retirement, I run a small machine shop making model Steam and Internal Combustion Engines, and I'm learning to use the 3D Printer so that I can make Patterns to be used for casting the metal components of those engines.

IT Manager, though my role is more of a hybrid manager/sysadmin. Been in IT for over 10 years.

Hello, SELL 3d printers and models to print. All it has to do with 3D models for me is a universe to discover. and Working on this is definitely great.
Passionate about 3D modeling and impressions of that kind, visit my website: https://www.stlfinder.com/
