WELCOME to the TCM Design Group, LLC. website.
Our Mission - "Drawing out the Dream"
"Drawing out the Dream" has always been my motto. In essence it has a double meaning. The first is to obviously draw the dreams of my customers; not just draw but also develop. The other is personal. Drawing (actually designing) is my dream. I do it for work. I do it for charity. I do it for fun. When I teach design, I try to teach more than just the mechanics and tools of AutoCad. I believe in teaching the attitude, the appreciation, and the love of creating something you can and should be proud of. The challenge to any designer is to not only develop prints that are accurate, but also functional...even beautiful. If a picture is worth a thousand words then it's our responsibility to ensure that those words are meaningful, unambiguous, and truthful.
TCM Design Group, LLC. is wholly run and owned by me, Todd Miller, and my wife, Cheryl Ann. We both graduated from Purdue University, Lafayette (19-91/92) with BSME's in Mechanical Engineering. My emphasis was on design, computer-aided design and mechanics and Cheryl's was on production/manufacturing.
The TCM Design Group was started in 2000 when I had a chance to become a stay-at-home dad and Cheryl had the chance to restart her engineering career after several years home raising our children. With my then 10 years experience as an AutoCad manager and contacts in the area's RV and building industries, I decided to offer my services as a add-on designer for contract. My experience includes codes and building standards, architectural/structural design and drafting, data analysis, programming, and 3D modeling and rendering. Along the way, I started teaching AutoCad software and design at Ivy Tech Elkhart Campus: training youngsters to replace ME in industry. I also took on the team leader responsibilities for our church's modern worship technical side; called The Bridge. This position allowed me to expand my talents into audio/visual, lighting, pro sound, and computer technologies. And so now that brings us to the present: stay-at-home Dad, husband, Designer/Engineer, Computer Geek, Sound Engineer, Adjunct Professor, golfer, etc.......WELCOME TO MY SITE!
