Z-Purse

Does he have more important things to worry about? Probably. If I try to start a beef with him over this, would he take the bait? Anyone want to find out?!

Autodesk Fusion 360 Review

Anybody know what this thing is? Looks a bit like a Portal Gun to me...

Autodesk Fusion 360 (let’s just refer to it as “F360” from here on out because I don’t want to type that a bajillion times) jumped onto my radar in a big way a while back when they began advertising the freeness of it all for startups and hobbyists.  Making approximately negative dollars with the work on this website puts me in at least one of those categories, so I lost all excuses not to try it out.

Coming out on the other end of experience with F360, I have to say that  It. Is. Great.

First try!

After many years of using SolidWorks while hiding in fear of certified failure, I finally buckled down, studied up, and passed the CSWP exam (two months ago)!

When I was a kid there was a mini sledge hammer at my church that had "IRON FOX" written on it. I thought that was the name of Thor's hammer for too long.

Your ancestors called it magic, but you call it science.  I come from a land where they are one and the same.

-Thor (2011)

That feeling of magic and science is what I wanted to invoke when taking hold of this hammer and watching it light up.  No visible plugs, switches, or any other indication of functionality thanks to inductive charging and reed switches.
