Currently I work for a local government. I prepare public space civil engineering projects for wich I create drawings , specifications and visualisation. This work contains maintenance and reconstruction of sewers and roads, parks and suburbs.I'm a CAD application manager for our department at this moment.I've been using Microstation since Microstation SE. Previous to that I was a AutoCAD user. There was no budget these days to re-educate me into a Microstation draftsman, so I had to teach myself. That made me come up with a lot of workarounds; macro's, configurations, GUI-modifications, and more things that made the program work the way I felt it could or should. Some of wich were unnecessary in the end, when Microstation turned out to have better alternatives. But other modifications proved to be valuable to the office. Altogether a very educating experience.
Through the years I've learned that if someone can make something, then someone else can change it, brake it, or enhance it. Nothing is fools proof, since fools are so ingenious, so I like to keep things open for editing to users. It's a way to innovate. To have people take responsibility for mistakes and credit for improvements. To climb a mountain path one obstacle at a time.
