My capstone was about the participation levels of CAD in SLA's engineering department. I went on a school year long personal seminar for teaching myself CAD (computer aided drafting) relevant to machinery in the engineering room. My hope is that this might be used to give those who are interested a boost when they start. I quit several times due to how much there was to learn and how unguided the process felt. My goal is to lower the chances of that happening with students in the future by offering the methods and outlooks I used as I learned. I try to do this in a way that is inviting and accessible as possible.
