Lydia Sloan Cline (Overland Park, KS) has been happily using Autodesk products since AutoCAD version 1.0 was released. She went from plotting her ideas on a flatbed table with pens in robotic arms to sketching them with modeling software and 3D printers. She works for architecture firms, teaches college, judges competitive technology events, and wants you to join the huge community of makers and creators. Lydia is the author of three textbooks: Architectural Drafting for Interior Designers, Drafting and Visual Presentation for Interior Designers, and SketchUp for Interior Design. She teaches Autodesk 123D and MakerBot classes for Johnson County Community College.
