My title here is "Product Development Specialists" - I am a Product Designer getting pictures, drawings or sketches from our Customers and/or Designers and translating that Design Intent to a Solid Model and Shop Drawings.. My favorite method is getting an image and designing from there, it is very rewarding seeing it in our Finish Department...
So from this

You only use Solidworks?
My official title is Design Engineer. However, I am not sure that I qualify as an engineer, as I don't have a degree of any sort.
I have used CATIA V5 and I-DEAS with a sprinkling of AutoCAD and UG in the past, but I use Solidworks now.
In my current job, I design fixtures for our Aerospace division. Most of the fixtures are machining fixtures, but in the last couple of years, I have been breaking into EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining fixtures) and ECM (Electro-Chemical Machining fixtures).
This is my first job in which I am not designing the end product.
In my previous jobs:
I was a Product Designer for Hood Latches and Hood Hinges for a supplier to Ford, GM, Chrysler and Toyota
I was a Product Designer for Gas Mask Components for a supplier to the DoD (the M50 military Gask Mask has my Filter Mount in it)
~3 years tool/die/fixture design with part design and consulting for injection molding.
(current) 1.5 years as a designer for a large medical device company with the R&D division.
My title is Product Engineer. I work in the office furniture industry designing desks, chairs and all types of storage for a wide variety of office environments. I've used SolidWorks since 2004; however a recent change in ownership forced us to move to Inventor. That was an easy transition to make but while Inventor is a good package I think it lacks the power and flexibility of SolidWorks. Rumor has it management is taking a look at SolidWorks so maybe...

• SolidWorks Modeling & Drafting
• ...for both the company and for customers who are doing product development with the company
• SolidWorks Macro Programming
• Using this forum.
• CNC Laser Nesting (and some manual programming)
• I did some CNC Punch programming but that sucked compared to working with lasers.
• Engineering Procedure Analysis & Recommendations (aka complaining about documentation issues and presenting solutions)
• I am spearheading SW PDM implementation and PDM/ERP integration at the moment.
• SW & Laser Nesting Training
• Helping with miscellaneous issues (Excel formula issues, some small IT tasks, etc.)
• Saying "No!"
I can not imagine being human inside.
