SolidWorks 2015 launch marks 30 years of CAD Microsolutions

TORONTO – The Hockey Hall of Fame played host this month to a couple of power plays with the launch of SolidWorks 2015 and the 30th anniversary celebration of CAD MicroSolutions, Inc.

CAD MicroSolutions managing director Chris Watkinson said the company began with one person in a home office. “It is heartening to see that some customers have been with the company the entire time “and to see the quality of the new ones that continue to select CAD MicroSolutions. It’s also great see the quality of staff that we’ve been able to attract – it’s very humbling.

“Last year our customers asked us for a little more in-depth training on a day like today. The technical team did a great job in adding value for our customers. It’s always tough to take a day off of work and to justify that time spent away from the office, but I’m confident that every single person here today got a lot out of the day.”

Darren Gornall, president of CAD MicroSolutions said, “Today was about inspiring innovation and recognizing legends. A number of our customers are doing the inspirational innovation now and we want them to become legends in the very near future.


“I’m really proud of the relationship we have with SolidWorks. Recently I was in Paris at Dassault Systemes and seeing what they are doing with the 3D Experience platform is just phenomenal work.

“This will help the staff of CAD Micro make our customers more innovative.”

At the event addressing CAD Micro customers were Paul Adams, VP Worldwide Technical Sales at SolidWorks presented the 3D Experience platform while SolidWorks Mechanical-Conceptual was presented by Michel Cloutier, SolidWorks senior territory technical manager.
