    You Have Severe Wrist Pain from CAD. Now What?

    Posted by Tony Lonergan on Sep 26, 2017 10:00:00 AM

    As a CAD user, you’re likely no stranger to wrist pain. You may even be a pro at preventing it with helpful stretches, ergonomic tools and more. But, despite their attempts to prevent it, most people will experience severe wrist pain. This is especially true for those who work on the computer regularly.

    In fact, each year more than 500,000 people in the United States alone must undergo surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), a common painful wrist syndrome that impacts the median nerve.

    Prevention is important, but how can you relieve the wrist pain you already have without compromising on your work? Below we highlight a few remedies you can try to alleviate your wrist pain, as well as the importance of consulting with your doctor.

    Rotate Between Hot and Cold

    Both ice packs and heating pads can help relieve pain quickly, although both serve different purposes. Ice packs can help numb pain and cut down on swelling, while heating pads relax the muscles and allow blood to easily flow to any kind of injury.

    Why Engineers Should Not Be Using the Mouse They’re Using Now (Unless it’s a CadMouse)

    Posted by Mark Driscoll on Jan 12, 2017 11:30:00 AM


    Millions of engineers, designers and CAD professionals are unnecessarily limiting their potential and don’t even know it.

    We all know the sinking feeling that hits us when we realize there’s not enough time left in the day to accomplish what you set out to do. And who hasn’t felt a little frustrated when struggling to make CAD software do what you want? Worse still, is when you need to complete the task but your hands, arms and shoulders are telling you it’s time for a rest.

    These are facts of life for many CAD professionals. But they don’t have to be. In fact, a lack of general efficiency and discomfort when working are issues caused or greatly exacerbated by a single problem:

    The mouse you’re using.

    We’re not talking about a 3D mouse either.

    We mean the ordinary mouse you use to click and select. You know, the mouse you use to do pretty much everything on your computer. 

    But what could possibly be wrong with your ordinary mouse? After all, you may have even chosen yours specifically.

    Well, that’s precisely it: an ordinary mouse is alright at a lot of things. It may even excel at a few. But it definitely doesn’t excel at prolonged CAD work. Read on to learn why—and the simplest of solutions (which didn’t even exist until just over 12 months ago).
