from Civil to Inventor

The Autodesk enthusiast exile

We moved !!

Join us at the new host site

I am hosting my own site and blog now.  It has been my desire to create a site that has better content, news, information and benefit to the Autodesk Design and Manufacturing community.  More storage and flexibility was required.  This site will be discontinued over time.

The new Blog “Design and Motion” can be found here:

The main site will be developed as time progresses
