It’s been a while since we’ve asked this. Plus, when I was talking to a friend about mixing cheese sauce with green paint and throwing it into a fan, he suddenly slapped me and mentioned this:

“I’m currently using SolidWorks, NX, AutoCAD, TeamCenter, KeyShot, Shot, and Photoshop as my design arsenal.”

I dropped the cheese sauce. I was shocked and amazed. “That’s a lot of different programs.” I said. I imagine some of you live in the same cornucopia of deisgn and management bliss.

For instance, I use SolidWorks, AutoCAD, a homegrown PDM system, Photoview 360, modo and Photoshop.” Quite the list as well, I must say. So now, I’m wondering about you. How crazy is it?

I can’t possibly think of everything, so if I missed something blatantly obvious, just let me know in the comments and I’ll add it in. (Listed in alphabetical order for your convenience.)
