I started on the board. (yes I am an old fart and I was great with a LeRoy set. HaHa)
In 1982 I was using VAX software to digitize SBT lines onto mappings for Hinkles & McCoy.
In 1987 Greiner decided to try a new product called CAD using a McDonell Douglas product GDS.
I was hooked!
In 1988 wrote a GuideSign Program which was based off of the Texas Sign Program.
In the early 90s I was introduced to MicroStation and never looked back,
I wrote 100s of Macros to benefit the design efforts.
Many of these macros are similar to what FDOT is doing with their development today.
With MSv8 came the addition of VBA. (AWESOME!)
I was using ProjectWise in the early 2000’s, but the network couldn’t handle the load as well
and it was a tough sell, but one I believed in.
I am fortunate enough to have also been an IT Administrator for multiple companies for many years.
This allows me to see both sides and gives me a unique prospective on CADD issues and resolutions.
The future is exciting and I can’t wait for the next big progression in CADD.
