We always love to hear about novel and unexpected uses for DraftSight, the professional-grade 2D CAD product (and free download) from Dassault Systèmes.
Architectural technician Neil Warren, from Totnes, England, regularly uses DraftSight for work assignments, but he recently called in the program for extra special duty.
DraftSight fan Neil Warren is also a fan of actor David Prowse, aka Darth Vader!
Warren, who many of you on the DraftSight Facebook page may recognize as “that Stormtrooper guy,” recently visited London’s Estree Film Studios for a special gathering of Star Wars actors, directors and prop masters.
Meeting Darth Vader and director Gary Kurtz — and scoring their autographs on Star Wars artwork — is surely worthy of commemorating.
Warren is laser etching the Star Wars logo and celebrities’ names on a metal plaque to go along with his framed memorabilia. We’re proud that DraftSight is playing a role in preserving such great memories!
Neil Warren's customized Star Wars plaque was designed in DraftSight (click to enlarge).
