Summary of Internship

My role as an intern at Coffin Turbo Pumps is to reproduce the old drawings in the archive, update them to CAD (computer aided design), and digitally save them on the system. I use AutoDesk Inventor Professional 2009 to do most of my work. I refer to this program as CAD. I also use the drawings to design 3D model renderings of the drawings. With these 3D models, I am able to reproduce drawings for these pumps. This is all done with the useful program Auto Desk Inventor Professional. I also am learning how the engineering department engages with the rest of the departments in the company.
