Transferring between CAD and 3d modelling

No.499190 ViewReplyOriginalReport
sup /3/ just asking some questions about the possibility of transferring from engineering CAD/CAM over to 3d Modelling

Currently doing an apprenticeship becoming a CAD Technician at a well known company. The course they offer is good and ill get to know the in's and outs of using Solidworks. I have past experience in both Solidworks and Inventor if this makes any difference. My ultimate goal is to somehow learn how to use a 3d modelling program (currently got my eyes set on maya) and design for vidya games in some way or another. I had ideas about applying for somewhere like Autodesk for Inventor, then maybe learning skills with Maya within the company if at all possible.

I have no real experience with 3d modelling software, but I am already very confident with Inventor and Solidworks
