Perhaps second only to training, developing CAD Standards for your company is the quickest way to increase overall CAD productivity. Development of standard pen settings, layers, text settings, etc. can be critical for successful drawing creation in a multi-user environment.
Standard block or drawing libraries can be a helpful tool for assuring uniform design concepts on your drawings. Of course, any set of CAD standards is only as good as its documentation and ease-of-use. We can automate the use of CAD standards as well as provide a printed standards manual for your company.
Standards can be configured for each individual workstation or network wide. Once these standards are adopted and in use, it is easy to add additional users and reduces time for internal company standards training.
Our approach to training is different than what you’re used to…
First, we believe that any CAD program is a like a tool chest. There are many tools in the chest. Some tools you will use every day, some are power tools, some tools you will use on only one project and some tools should never leave the tool chest. The challenge with CAD is to become aware of all the tools that you have available and to find the tools that will help you the most.
Have you ever attended a class taught by someone who doesn’t understand what you do? Not a great idea. The person teaching the class must be knowledgeable about both the industry and the software. That’s exactly what you’ll get here.
Every course we teach is CUSTOMIZED SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU…
In order for you to get the most out of the training session we first need to learn about the type of work you are producing now and the type of things you want to produce. We will then design a customized course specifically for you. Every tool is then taught in its proper context by using your projects along the way. So whether you are new to CAD, need some help with a specific task, or simply need a refresher we will design a course which meets your needs…exactly.
Training that FITS YOUR SCHEDULE…
We know your time is valuable. Training must fit into your schedule so whether you need a multi-day crash course, 1 day per week for a month, or ½ day refresher sessions we can help. We are even available or early morning, evening or on weekend sessions.
More than just software installation, CAD implementation involves helping our clients to effectively upgrade to a new version of CAD or streamline an existing system. CADNET Services can insure that all installations are identical so that all users have the correct configuration.
Moving to a new version of CAD can involve more than just running the software setup from a CD. Many times other hardware and software components of your CAD system will also need to be re-configured or even upgraded.
