Please give me a call at (419) 656 4375 ext 107, again my name is Joe. Below gives more information.

This job opportunity is good for welcoming new faces to the mechanical engineering work force and is a temporary position, however it can also be a contracted position. There are numerous ways hours can be assigned and the length of employment can vary, this will be elaborated on more upon employment.

-ability to use and work in SolidWorks fluently.

-make changes to the file name and description of a part without losing the part in an assembly/having to find the part again.

-Create drawings from parts with useful information and data.

-IMPORT drawings from AutoCAD to SolidWorks quickly and efficiently

-Be able to communicate with suppliers to import models of their products into solidworks.

Main goals of this position:

You will be required to continue to integrate our new system with the information and data from the old system. All files and data will be readily available at your fingertips. All 2D drawings need to be brought over from AutoCAD LT to 3D SolidWorks 2014 and all details for each specific part to be integrated in a professional manner. You are a team player and communication between your employee's is a must.
