While I’m a good problem solver I seem to lack the artistic design genes so I usually need some visual stimulation from something or someone else then I can draw up my own plans and adjust them as needed; often making changes and improvements with my problem solving skills. As a consequence my work tends to be more pragmatic and function oriented than artistic.
Before computer CAD programs became available I use drafting skills i acquired in high school. Then I advanced to the early computer drawing programs (like MacDraw) on the computer and on to CAD programs and finally using Sketchup, mainly for it’s 3D functions….although when I build something complicated I go with 2D CAD drawn plans which I find more precise. My wife particularly likes the Sketchup 3D so she can visualize the final project better.
