Got down to making some design things in Autodesk Inventor… I’ve pretty much had it with the 2-D CAD… it was OK back in the day, but the ‘improvements’ that have been made to the program since the early 0’s have me scratching my head… so heck with it. Long as I can read the old drawings, I suppose that I’ll be OK.
But, it is nice to be working for a company where metric units of measure are the company standard. No attempt to make it easy for the vendors that don’t like metric measurements by putting dual dimensions on the drawings (Metric and Non-Metric for every dimension) , fuckum, as they say on my planet. Conform, or enter a ‘No Bid’! Bwa-hahahaha… There’s lots of hungry shoppes out there in these Hopey-Changey times…
I received the last of my initial safety training today… boy, these guys are careful about everything! When they say Zero Accidents they mean it! 5mph in the parking lots… no walking outside the crosswalks, outside the building AND in the plant! Locks… bagels… No, the bagels were at another plant. Oy! And if you screw up the tiniest little bit, WHAM~! You get the black spot! Yarrr…..
But all in all, it is a really neat organization. Hope that they decide to hire me full time, it will be a blast!
