I'm only a cadd artist in my spare time. my "real" job is um....computer support for "real" cad art-eests. But really, all I do is make sure their computers can all talk to other computers. what they actually DO with their computers....over my head.
most of them could create that model in about 5 minutes. took me...well, I'm not going to admit how long it took me. I consider it "training". yeah, thats it. "training". gotta know how to use it in case anyone ever needs "support".
the program I used is called "sketchup". its a 3d-modeling program. The idea is to be able to see how certain modifications (tanks, plumbing, etc...) might fit in different areas...what will interfere with what, what will need to be moved, etc.
