AutoCAD MDT is probably the most prevalent, but solidworks also has a niche

I assume this would be the place to post questions regarding to AutoCAD Mechanical as well. Am I wrong?

Seeing as how the position I applied for mentioned putting me in mechanical, I thought I would read a bit in here when I came across this thread and then looked at the dates. Maybe I have a better chance than I thought due to it's emptiness?  :-D Wait, why would no one want to go into mechanical??  :? Does the mechanical community have a secret forum elsewhere?  8-)

Seriously, any ideas on the outlook for mechanical drafters?

Mechanical Desktop (MDT) has not been offered for sale as product by Autodesk for many years.  Apparently the forum moderator has never heard of the replacement product - Autodesk Inventor.

What make you think that? Did a previous discussion with the forum moderator lead to to believe your claim? Or could you just be Psychic?!  ...I bet its the latter huh?! Can you tell me what the winning lottery numbers are going to be (Send them to me in a PM though, cause im greedy!).



Seriously though, your not as dumb as a bag of hammers like this post leads me to believe...are you?

YOU have no need to apologize.  This is just an old left over forum that perhaps needed some dust blown out of it.  What sort of work were you thinking your new employer was speaking of with "mechanical"?  There are mechanical "pieces parts" type drawings and also HVAC / plumbing / fire protection type drawings also referred by some as "mechanical" that are also sometimes found in shops that do electrical work.

I would imagine then that this would be what they were referring to as mechanical.  I have done this type of work in the pre-CAD days back when I was doing mostly electrical . . . fun stuff . . . I sometimes wish I were still a "sparky."

Good to hear. You think I will eventually get promoted from mechanical to electrical? (Being new to the industry I have lots of funky questions. :mrgreen:)

I think I would call that more a lateral move but yes, if expressed interest in helping the electrical guys doing similar chores as you are for the plumbing you may wind up doing that.  The ideal would be get experience in both so when you are ready for more responsibilities you can go into either one if an opportunity presents itself.  Either is a good place for learning basics.

I will have to see what I can do after I settle in a bit. I was interviewed by the electrical guy for the mechanical dept. (due to his company status) and he explained that he stayed in electrical and generally had no idea what was going on in the mechanical department so I don't know how easy it will be.

*I* wouldnt call that a lateral move, i would call that a vacation. I could go from, "Dude you missed a mechanical room and cost this project a million dollars!" to "Dude, you missed one of those dollar sign thingies."

yea... because now that Inventor is around, we all know that NO ONE would stick with MDT...

and NO ONE uses Autocad 2000, or 2004... let alone R12 *gasp*

oh wait... no... that's not right at all! ;)

Dear Greg,

We at 7goo, inc, feel a situation has just presented itself which calls for an insult to be directed at you, however you have reached your limit of insults.

I would also like to take this brief moment of your time to inform you of our latest rate increase. *Please keep this notice for your records in a safe and secure place for future reference.*

It is our goal at 7goo, inc. to offer the highest quality insults at the cheapest rates, however recent price hikes in the oil industry has caused us to raise our current rate in an attempt to offset some (not all) of those costs.

Would you like to continue and accept all charges or cancel now and pay current bill?

Yes, accept charges and receive the next three insults at the new rate?
No, cancel and pay my bill?

Thank you for your time.

Yours truly,


Se7en
President and CEO of 7goo, inc.

We treat every customer like they are our only customer.
