Default Re: What's your "day" job?

I am a Structural Designer / 3D modeler, we engineer, design, fabiricate, and build various sizes of Power Distribution Centers. Buildings that control very large machinery and/or control power plants and paper mills. Usually 20' x 40' x 15'.
I worked in our metal shop before it was discovered I was good with computers, now I am drafting with Autocad, and a 3D modeler called Metacam.

I've recently gotten into Visual Basic, and VBA implementing them into what I do and making programs to "draw for me" the basic things I need in a drawing, then I will add the specific and custom items. It cut my work from 3-4 days per building to approx 4-6 hours.
