I started my carer as a Structural / Bridge, Detailer / Designer on the drafting board. I started in CADD on an Intergraph 68k workstation in Dec. of 1982. I have progressed thru all versions of Intergraph since 8.5 & Bentley starting with Pseudostation. My background is in Bridge design but since I was first on CADD I have been involved in Bridges, Subways, Boston's "Big Dig" project, various Bus, Transit & Rail Facilities, mainly Structural but some Civil design.
I was sent for 3D training at Intergraph in Huntsville in 1984. Played around with 3D Visualization and was finally formally trained by Jerry Flynn in 2000 and dabbled in it since.
I am currently the MicroStation Support person for all MS users in my company (all offices thruout the US).
I was amazed then and I am still being amazed by how fast technology is evolving. How the different end users use and adapt to changes and I'm just trying to keep-up with everything!
In order to stay current I attend all the Bentley Conferences. I am active with BE Communities and Users Groups.
PS Along with this "gfradar", I have an additional log-in "Geo. Martin" to BE Communities.
