My name is Sam Lucido. I have been using AutoCAD since Release 8 (1987).  I started out using the software drafting up 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 1990’s and completed my Bachelor’s degree in Computer-Aided Design in April 2000 at Eastern Michigan University. Since that time I have been providing training, support, and customization within the engineering and design fields.

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 and Civil 3D Certified Professional as well as an Autodesk Expert Elite Member.

I am currently a Autodesk Design Systems Administrator and CAD Manager, I provide design support for a variety of engineering design projects and collaborate with design teams to develop comprehensive and thoroughly detailed plans for projects.  I coach and mentor all level staff on the latest developments in technology 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.

  2. Hi Sam, Great blog keep up your good work. I was looking for your email ID on about page but unable to find it (Sorry for ignorance!) can you share your email ID?

    • Hi Jaiprakash – Thank you. I will send you an email. I need to add that address to this site, thanks for the reminder.

  3. Hello Sam, i am really impressed with your knowledge and experience in Autodesk products. I am a Director of Development for a Non-Profit program dedicated to teaching American Veterans vocational skills so when they return to normal society, they can get a better paying job. We have started a school and will have AutoCAD as a curriculum and sure could use some support, teachers, etc. We are in Troy Michigan and would love to talk to you or anyone that can help us support our Soldiers. You can take a look at our website but please not it is still under construction,, Please feel free to contact me or anyone for that matter that would like to get involved in helping educate soldiers in the AutoCAD world.
