Customizing CADworks for EPIC

Recently Kyle McCormick and Wayne Jasper participated in a CADworks workshop put on  by ECE engineering. The biggest takeaway? CADworks is moving towards platforms that allow engineers to customize the program to their needs. For example, a design engineer at EPIC can make customized templates that can be saved into CADworks and repeatedly used. Kyle […]
