Thanks Jason for the nice complement...oh I completely forgot to mention
that part: Autodesk Fusion 360 is my home CAD. Its incredible and its free
and cloud based...I'll send a link out this weekend to the mailing list
with the instructions for signing up for a free one year "entrepreneur"
license...it'll eventually be a cheap subscription model.
