Instructor Biography

Aaron Flanary, Architecture and Mechanical Engineering Instructor

I am the owner of Triple A Drafting Inc. and have been a draftsman for over 15 years. I am a nationally accredited mechanical drafter (ADDA) and a former high school drafting teacher of an award winning drafting program within my state and have helped produce national winners. My design work includes such work as designing custom homes, commercial buildings, creating 3D architectural models, custom renderings and animation for inventors for U.S. Patent Office for patent submission. 

My years of drafting expertise will not only increase your software proficiency, I will increase your engineering vocabulary and your understanding of the design process in both the architectural realm and the field of mechanical engineering. I am proficient in several software packages including AutoCAD LT, Chief Architect and SolidWorks. Please check out my facebook to see some of the CAD projects I have completed throughout my drafting career. I look forward to working with anyone that is interested in improving their drafting skills.
