3dudes-gone3dWhat exactly do you get when you stick two highly talented SolidWorks users, a middle-age product manager and thick sarcasm into a small trailer?

Only the most jaw-tightening 3D CAD video series hilarity to ever be broadcast across the vast reaches of limited wi-fi access. These videos wreak of everything your design universe is composed of. I don’t want to build it up too much, but if you don’t watch it, you life will be exactly 9 minutes less special. It’s true.

CAD Pao, CAD Powers, Blessed CAD
Join Stephen, Bob and and Kish as they explore their CAD powers and share dumplings. Currently there are 3 videos available to view at 3 Dudes Gone 3D with two more in the works. If I were you I would look forward to CAD Ninja. Oh yes.

Best line:
“Stephen, Does the unreasonable brilliance wafting out of my pores fill you tiny little heart with fear?” Kish – Blessed CAD

Easter Eggs
There’s probably loads of obscure references throughout the videos. Here’s two that are pretty obvious.


Oh yeah, the content
Well, yes sure, there’s some good info in these videos too… Using 3DContentCentral to find models and reduce design time, visiting the user forums to collaborate and share (It’s a new day) and demeaning your co-worker to get a free lunch from the boss. All great lessons.

Who’s behind all these?
Well, only the amazing media talent at SmallArmy. The same people behind the Smashing Sumo Simulation and the Explosive Design Videos. I think they’re a keeper.
