“I have already convinced senior management to approve sending more people next year.”

CADD Edge, Inc., the leading provider of SolidWorks CAD software in the Northeast, held its annual training event at MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, CT on November 7 and 8. Over 300 attended, including 250 engineers and designers, as well as 30 CAD industry partners.

“We’ve been hosting this event for 13 years and provide two days of custom training, from basic to advanced topics, at a minimal charge – an invaluable investment for SolidWorks users with all levels of experience,” said Marcel Matte, CADD Edge COO.

“All too often we see engineers using the software the way they were trained 4 years ago and they’re missing out on all the new functionality added by SolidWorks. This training removes the blinders and extends the capabilities of each attendee.”

Keynote speaker, Aaron Kelly, Vice President, User Experience and Product Development at SolidWorks kicked off the event by speaking about SolidWorks’ commitment to customer satisfaction and feedback. “CADD Edge hosts a top notch event – it's consistently a terrific forum for information sharing and live feedback,” stated Kelly. “It's not often I have the opportunity to interact with hundreds of users in one place, outside of events hosted by SolidWorks.”

Attendees chose from 35 training sessions hosted by CADD Edge application engineers and industry specialists from Stratasys, NVIDIA, CAMWorks and other CAD vendors who are improving engineering design and manufacturing processes.

“I truly enjoyed this event again this year. You all did a great job and I got a great deal out of the program, once again,” said Frank Biolsi from Sonnax Industries. “I have already convinced senior management to approve sending more people next year.”

“This is the best reseller event we’ve attended,” said Katie Hyunh, who was on-site representing NVIDIA GRID™ VCA, a visual computing appliance enabling fast, high quality, remote processing. “It’s well organized and the attendees are highly engaged.”

CADD Edge User Group is held annually in the fall, timed with SolidWorks annual product releases. To get information on next year’s event or to get training on SolidWorks products, contact Susan Leuci at 508-630-8184 or visit the CADD Edge website at
