Just installed Solidworks 2012 last week.
I've done some farting around with AutoCAD in the past. Do a lot of mechanical design for test equipment here, so I have that skillset down but what I don't have is how to model it in CAD for documentation purposes. Learning to speak CAD has a bit of a learning curve.
(I'm an electrical nerd, schematic/PCB layout and LabVIEW for instrument control are my tools of choice)
Company had a few open seats after a few other mechanical guys left for other ventures, so I hopped on it. There's some classes at the local Solidworks sales office, but I want to get a little more familiar with the software before I jump into that.
