Background of Reid M. Addis - Registered Architect and CAD Specialist
Mr. Addis first began working with CAD in 1987 as the office manager of a small architectural practice. In January of 1988, Reid became the CAD system coordinator of Bower Lewis Thrower Architects in Philadelphia. A year later, he formed his own CAD consulting firm, Addis Computer Consultants. Most recently, Reid was the Architectural Applications Manager at Granary Associates in Philadelphia, where he set up both a sophisticated Architectural Desktop and Revit custom interface.
Reid is a Certified Technical Trainer (CTT), and an AutoCAD Certified Instructor (ACI). Beginning in 1993, Reid became a Softdesk Registered Consultant (SRC). With Autodesk's acquisition of Softdesk in 1997, the SRC program evolved into the Autodesk Authorized Independent AEC Consultant program. Reid has always felt that a consultant's three greatest assets are honesty, integrity, and independence. In order to provide a wider variety of services to his clients, Reid began to support KETIV's ArchT software in 1997, and was a Certified ArchT Trainer. Reid provides training for Autodesk's Architectural Desktop, AutoCAD, Revit, and Autodesk Viz. Reid is also co-author for the book "Softdesk Architecture 1 Certified Courseware" from Onword Press. He has worked with AutoCAD since 1987, beginning with Release 2.6, and provides production assistance to many architectural firms.
Reid no longer provides consulting services for the MicroStation community. He worked with MicroStation from Release 3.3 to SE/J. He has co-authored two books on MicroStation including "Inside MicroStation 5.0" from New Riders Press, and "The MicroStation Bible" from Onward Press. Before Ideagraphix was purchased by Bentley Systems, Inc, Reid worked with their MicroArchitect and speedikon M products.
