Online Article Series Providing Insider Tips for CAD/CAM Buyers

Online manufacturing destination educates companies on what CAD/CAM hardware and software products fit best into their design to manufacturing workflow process.

Researching and ultimately choosing CAD/CAM software (computer-aided design and manufacturing) can be a daunting, confusing and time consuming task. There are a lot of moving pieces, and one bad decision can not only be costly, but sometimes devastating.
CAD/CAM Connect recognized this, and launched an online series of articles providing valuable insight and “insider tips” for buyers, mechanical engineers, machinists, design and IT professionals focusing on what they need to know and ask before they actually cut a check.

“You’ve got to know the right questions to ask, and the right people to get answers from,” says Ken Wilson, Founder & CEO of CAD/CAM Connect. We have access to these suppliers and experts on one website and we’re one phone call or email away. If we can help simplify this process, while helping people make better decisions, we’ve done our job. This is one of the reasons we launched this series.”
By teaming up with suppliers and one of the largest Online Mechanical CAD communities, ConnectPress, CAD/CAM Connect provides articles to ConnectPress’ 350,000 + subscribers and their communities including; Autodesk Inventor, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks and CATIA, Siemens SolidEdge and Parametric Technologies (PTC) - Creo.

"With CAD/CAM Connect’s industry knowledge, thousands of engineering and supplier contacts, and strong understanding of the entire design to manufacturing workflow process, we knew the articles he (Ken Wilson) and his partner suppliers provided would be valuable to our audience," says Dan Raker, publisher, ConnectPress.
