About the Author
Timothy D. Olson, President, Evolution Software. Evolution Software leads the development efforts for Encore’s CAD products that target the retail and professional digital design markets. These products were originally acquired from CADSoft Solutions (CSI) in 2006. As former founder of CSI, Olson guided the company into providing high-quality commercial CAD software rebranded under such names as CADD Pro, AeroCADD, Concepts Unlimited, Concepts 2D/3D, ViaCAD, Vellum Solids, Cobalt, TurboCAD Mac, TurboCAD 2D/3D, and Shark. Prior to founding CSI in 1994, Olson was Chief Engineer for Lockheed’s Advanced Programs Design Methods group where he was responsible for the development of an internal CAD program, one of the first associative hybrid CAD systems to evolve onto workstation technology in the early 1980’s.

That being said, do not consider ViaCad 2D/3D limited to being just a program for home 3D printer use. You may be amazed at how capable this software is. I believe you will find that it fights WELL above it's price point in the CAD world and is suitable of an astounding variety of design tasks for home design with full rendering capabilities (including shading and blueprint output), to furniture design, manufacturing design and so much more. Dimensions, blueprint output, etc is all easy to do.
I have always believed that the main thing that makes any enterprise or venture successful is having a "champion for the cause." (Think Steve Job at Apple a few years back.) After buying this book I found on a ViaCad user blog that the author of this book is that guy for this CAD program! No wonder he knows this program inside and out. While I am sure there are many programmers and contributors to the program that continually make it better (based on looking at it's release history) the author of this book seems to be the driving force behind ViaCad. No wonder this book adds so much insight to the use of the program.
