You consider yourself as an inventor. Being in the business that spans several decades, you designed various machines for packaging food and other food grade materials. You developed machines that increased the efficiency of human workers in factories that process cereal, corn snacks, potato chips and the like.
You did it all by the power of your inquisitive mind, dexterous fingers, and eccentric view of the way the world works. For years, you were just happy tinkering on your shop, manually trying out everything and writing down your designs using pen and paper. You used up a lot of paper especially during the early design stage. A tweak here and there merits a new drawing. Mostly tedious, definitely necessary, you are comfortable in doing what you are used to do.
When the so-called computer age came, you were enthusiastic about learning the ins and outs of this new contraption. Learning computer jargon and cad design software became too complicated and counterproductive. You cannot use it in your craft so you got tired of it and did not give it a second glance. Through the years, you observed the explosive change the computer has brought into the world. In your old age, you enjoyed browsing the internet and playing the occasional mind bending game but you saw the computer as a toy and not as a tool to help you in your work.
As you waded through the muck of information technology, you typed the keywords of your craft and discovered the existence of mechanical design software. You wondered what it can do for you so you were relentless in your research. You were overjoyed to learn that mechanical design software can help you all throughout the design process without having to draw and redraw the schematics for prototypes. It can also help you in product simulation even if there is no physical, three-dimensional model.
You chose to buy the mechanical design software and updated your computer into a high-powered machine that can churn out information in less than the blink of an eye. Even if they say that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks, you believe that you are no ordinary dog. The mechanical design software you bought was easy to use once you got the hang of it. There is a tutorial for every question and maneuver that you want to execute.
There were occasions when you wanted to murder the computer during a fit of frustration. Looking back, they were no less than the innumerable number of times that you threw stuff around in your workshop when you were a lot younger. All in all, the mechanical design software works like a dream that fits into your version of reality.
