Any AutoCAD and/or Solidworks geeks around here who know anything about industrial piping design?

I need an engineering drawing done, and then a 3D model from that. It would help to know something about piping design.

PM-Me

I'm a senior piping designer for petro-chemical and specialty chemical companies with over 35 yrs experience. Only issue is I do not know solid works. When I used 3d programs it was PDMS. In the near future I will be evaulating AutoCad Plant Design Suite Premium 2012 for the company I work for.

Let me know If you feel I can help.

The TX hates have gone down from their high of two years ago which was in the upper $50's low $60/hr. I have seen rates currently from $35-$50/hr and that's for short term assignments. Rates are better for short term assignment than long term.

I was hired where I'm at over 3 yrs ago when the rates were up. I've received raises every year I've been here. I'd be a fool if I went to TX for a lot less money and short term employment. Besides, I get to sleep in my own bed every night.

They were offering $85/hr for a short period of time. Those jobs were also for 3-6mo assignments. I had a few of my friends working out there. I was constantly getting email addy updates because they were layed off. They made good money but right now they aren't working.

When TX starts laying people off they do it by the hundreds at a time and flood the market. Getting another job quickly is not easy. Your competing with hundreds of applicants for a handful of 3-6 mon positions until work picks up. Most of the petrochem work was for offshore platforms. After the Gulf accident Obama shut the industry down and engineering of new platforms was halted. This flooded the market again with no possibility of immediate recovery. The rates drop drastically. It will be a long time before the Houston rates get back to $85/hr. in the design field it is all supply and demand.

Perdium is also broken out from the rate not added on top. They will break out the max the IRS will allow for living in the area and that money will not be taxed. Perdium is also only good for 1 yr. The IRS has a perdium chart to go by. I have it in spreadsheet form for the country.
