The First Post!

Between CAD Classes - The First Post!

Welcome to my new blog! My name is Tracy Chadwick. I am the coordinator and lead instructor of the Computer Drafting Technology program at Hutchinson Community College. I have been teaching CAD classes at HCC for 14 years. Prior to that I did some drafting and design work in the grain industry.

I am a big reader of blogs related to CAD and design and decided to jump in and create one myself. I have a busy schedule, so I plan to blog between preparing for class, teaching, and grading; hence the name of the blog. (It could probably also be called "Between CAD classes and late at night after I put my daughters to bed" but that url was taken). I plan to discuss topics dealing with my classroom experience as well as software tips and tricks.

I hold professional certifications for AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, and Autodesk Revit. I update those annually (for free!) at Autodesk University. I am also a big user of Creo 2.0. I hope to delve into AutoCAD Civil 3D, SolidWorks, and 3DS Max as time permits.

If you are interested in all things CAD, I hope you will follow my blog as it grows!

Thanks for looking!
