About CADproTips

My name is Sam Lucido. I have been using AutoCAD since Release 8 (1987).  I started using the software to draft layouts and site plans for a small parking company in Wixom, Michigan. I continued to work with AutoCAD moving into the environmental engineering field in the 1990s and completed my Bachelor’s degree in Computer-Aided Design in April 2000 at Eastern Michigan University. Since then, I have provided training, support, and customization in engineering and design.

I primarily work with the Autodesk product suite of software. I have been a speaker at Autodesk University for the past seven years (2012-2020) and received a Top Speaker Award from  Autodesk. I believe in sharing what I know and working in a team environment to learn and grow as a person and professional in the CAD and Design industry.

I am an AutoCAD, Civil 3D Certified Professional, and Autodesk Expert Elite Alumni.


I am a Senior Content Designer with Autodesk. I work in the Platform Services and Emerging Technologies group on the Desktop Connector Team.  I coach and mentor all level staff on the latest technological developments and Autodesk products based on market and client needs.

I believe that continued hard work and dedication will provide value to the company you work for leading to success.

Learning how to balance that with family and friends will bring you peace and happiness. I hope you enjoy my site and reading more about CAD and design.
