Right teenagers I have to tell you, because your parents are thick. (I don’t think there is even one overpaid person with Moray Council, for example, who could do this. They could do one or the other, but couldn’t put it together. Neither could the Moray College, and they teach CAD without any understanding of it)
Who uses computer CAD properly? Everyone except the British. How simple is it? Very. I shall explain.
This is an Australian based boat builder which uses CAD properly. The first boat is built, probably using Lofting, but maybe using computing. Lofting is considered the better way. Every plate when it is finalized becomes a computer file, which can be recut by computer as many times as required. TorchMate.* For ten boats. Fifty. Whatever. (*Or see it on the Bruce Roberts site)
Cars are built exactly the same way. Every part has a part number. Every part becomes a computer file with number. Every part can be recut at will. Like a jigsaw puzzle it can be made over and over again, but let the computer do it, for it does it with no effort. Fridges, freezers, cookers, anything. They all start as flat sheets of steel. What making in a fridge / freezer? Very little. Or even a TV or Computer.
How many of your dads could build a car or boat this way? Blacksmiths with spanners could make one now and again the hard way, like the Buckie boat yards scraped together a mish mash boat at a push. But mass produce? Not a hope. They thought the computers did it all without skills. Missed the point. How many of your dad’s have these skills or could even understand this? If you want to work, this is what you must learn and improve on. Wood, or metal, or any material.
