Fantastic Friday #011 | AU2020

So, here we are. Fantastic Friday #011. You may have noticed my absence from blogging for a while. I have had to focus on business and family. We are now in our SECOND lockdown here in the UK, and I just battened down the hatches for a while. COVID sucks. At this time of year, […]

Motivation Monday #010 | Revit – THE Open Letter to Autodesk

Welcome to Motivation Monday #010 from Not Just CAD! It is a serious one this week, but before I start, I MUST apologise for being off the radar for some time. I have had some personal matters to deal with and I needed to take the necessary time to heal, reflect and move forward. Those […]

Terrific Tuesday #001 | A Terrible Tuesday?

(Image courtesy of David Schwarzenberg on Pixabay) So, here’s a new one for you. Terrific Tuesday. Why is this late blog post called Terrific Tuesday? Well, if you are like me and working from home in isolation in the Norfolk countryside, you sometimes forget what day it is. So much so, that you forget to put the right […]

One AutoCAD – Has CadJedi Bitten Off More Than He Can Chew? [PART 7]

Things have been a bit quiet from me for a while. I apologise. That thing called life gets in the way, followed by work, followed by replying to emails, followed by……well, you get the picture, right? I promise I will try to be less tardy and if you see me at Autodesk University 2019 (AU2019) […]

One AutoCAD Gets “One” Vision [Part 6]

March 27th was the big day. Another new version of AutoCAD with AutoCAD 2020 and, in my humble opinion, some superb 20/20 vision from Autodesk (see what I did there?). This includes the AutoCAD in your One AutoCAD subscription as well as standalone, SLM and NLM licenses. I gave it the weekend to check out […]

One AutoCAD Goes To California [PART 5]

Some of you already know this, but I am an [in]structor on the LinkedIn Learning website and I create learning content about AutoCAD as an author. Some have also said that I’m a great Geico gecko impersonator too (it’s the accent), but that’s for you to decide. A couple of times a year, I get […]

Guitars and new tech…fascinating stuff!

Guitars are a passion of mine. For those of you who don’t know, I am not only an AutoCAD user, guru, instructor etc, but I am also a published singer/songwriter, endorsed by Hofner Guitars in Germany (note you may need to click on the little Union Jack – top right – to translate the page). […]

One AutoCAD Goes To Vegas [Part 4]

Getting back from AU to an unpacked house and IKEA furniture to assemble is NOT fun. Necessary after a house move the week before I travelled to LinkedIn Learning for a week, followed by the insanity of AU, but most definitely NOT fun. So, here I am, a month after AU, in the carnage of […]
