Introduction to Curt Dunmire
My Interests & Experience

I worked at Motorola for nearly 11 years starting out as a production operator for radio base station repeaters, and then relocated to the cellular base station manufacturing plant. After four years on various production lines, I took on a CAD drafter position for nearly seven years. I worked closely with engineering, rendering CAD drawings and solid modeling design, being proficient in 3 different CAD environments. I also created and updated internal Motorola build procedures for production lines.

Most recently I have been involved in SolidWorks 3D/2D CAD design for injection mold components, providing 3D models for the CNC machines to cut metal plates, mold parts, EOAT for robots, and CNC jigs where necessary. I have also designed plastic parts to be 3D printed for various tasks/purposes. I have enjoyed my last year and two months doing this type of work and have expanded my expertise in using Excel spreadsheets for calculation and record-keeping.

I find invention fascinating and welcome the challenge. I frequently find myself conceptualizing solutions for various sorts of problems and tasks. Currently, I have 2 developed concepts, both in the fitness industry, that I would like to make as well as a number of other product concepts.

I have been involved with web site design since 1996. I designed and maintained the Motorola CAD support intranet Web site for engineering. Starting in 1996, I developed small business web sites for other small companies. I still do Web site development and run my own server.

Here are some Web sites (or pages) I've built and/or continued to support:

  • Creativity-Portal.com Imagination Prompt Generator, major contributor in setting up general layout w/CSS, did all back-end PERL scripting, built responsive design template, and all JavaScript/DHTML. This page was the main design of the whole site, but the rest of the pages have begun to be replaced with a bootstrap based design.
  • Transfercases.com, built whole site—redesigned and converted most of the site pages to responsive design.
  • KaizenMuse.com, built whole site initially, others have done some edits and a few page additions.
  • Metric & Standard Measurement Conversion Widget, page provided as an example to showcase DHTML skills with an interactive user interface and not to highlight design skills.
  • Submit & Verify Links Form, created form pages with back-end PERL scripts to varify, accept, and add in new links to a flat file text database. Purpose of example is to showcase form handling PERL script actions and not to highlight design skills.
Working For You

I would enjoy working with companies that want to utilize my experience in Web site design, CAD drafting/3D modeling, graphic design, technical documentation, and other computer related work/tasks. I look forward to being a valuable contributor to your business.
