Though I'm a Mechanical Design Engineer, I hardly ever worked with a CAD Software like Solidworks. God has blessed me that way, if I see it in an optimestic way. But, I strongly regret my lack of this 3D Modelling/CAD skills.
Performing modifications at part or assembly level is one thing and building something from scratch is totally a different thing. It is likely that a person good at the latter won't be interested in performing the latter and vice versa.
And I stuck at the former part due to comfort zone and I want to come out of it. But I figurered there seems to be a scientific reason (neuroscience) for me staying away from the latter. In a nutshell, one task requires a focussed state of mind and another would require a diffused state of mind. And it's impossible to have both state of minds at the same time. The state of minds can be switched but not at a click of a button. (Ref: Knowledge Project Podcast)
In this blog post, I would be laying down my path towards... the above mentioned skill.
