I have recently gone back to working in the shops after being out of it since 2015, Im 68 years old,but still in good health. I have access to cheap metal so I want to start out building a few jet stoves outta square tubing and I wanted to draw them out first.
I am very proficient in Gibbscam, and I once worked through all the Solidworks tutorials back in 2011 I guess. I started on Autocad on an old 386 a long time ago, but I have never been a professional Draftsman or Engineer,just a shop hand,Machinist/Welder/whatever needs doing today.
I have been running Xbuntu since about 2012 as my preferred operating system,but of course I was always forced to learn Bill Gates current abortion to run the proprietary Gibbscam,Solidworks,etc for work purposes.
I am looking forward to learning Libre

I saw your user name and could'nt help bragging a little I guess. I assumed your nick concerned bicycles ,but now I see it could be motorcycles. I quit riding them after I hit that dog on my KLR-650.
Thanks for the warm welcome to the Gang!
