Hello my name is Stuart and I'm new to plasmaspider.

I just wanted to introduce myself and get to know the community.

I currently work with a LINCOLN Spirit 2 that I use to cut and create parts at work. I work for Platinum Machine from Durant OK where we do custom fabrication, sandblasting, and powder coating. I also have a LULZBOT mini 2 3D printer at home that I use to create custom car badges and parts for everyday use. I am only 17 so I'm decently young to the drafting world but learned in high school through robotics and the FRIST program. I have about one year of experience making custom car parts such as badges, grills, and mounts. I am interested to learn from this community and get to know everyone and improve my skills.

-Stuart

Welcome aboard Stuart, funny I started with Plasma cutting as a hobby and had to learn CAD drawing. My daughter has a Lulzbot and that got me going into 3D printing which made me learn 3D drawing, great fun your imagination can go wild with the things you can print. I have designed a few tools for my CNC plasma/router table. I'm at the other end of the age spectrum at 76. :HaHa You have bright future ahead of you. :Yay
I made back scratchers, drag knife holder, ink pen holder, and a diamond scribe holder for my table.
