You’ve come a long way, baby.
Today I received a local magazine in the mail and came across a 3-D septic system I design 18 years ago, while working for The Extension Service at Texas A&M. I was assigned to go out into the field and work with a local extension agent to see how the different septic systems where designed and built. My job was to create the graphics to represent these systems. With Photoshop and a third party plugin, I individually created each 3-D object for the entire system for the illustrations.
I can only imagine what I can create with the new graphics technology and tools available now. I get excited just thinking about it!
