Why use us - Make better decisions
Discouraged with the research and purchasing process of design and manufacturing products, lack of knowledge and customer support, Ken Wilson created CAD/CAM Connect as an all-encompassing platform combining years of research from the trenches, top products, industry news, user reviews and advisors from around the globe. From woodworking to metalworking to animations and simulations, … you’re covered with one call.
“Ken and his team of experts truly understand the industry and are genuinely interested in helping the end user find the best solution for their job.” — Steve Kersen, CEO of NVision
Through its high quality network, the valuable content it shares, and unbeatable industry expertise, CAD/CAM Connect aims to become the first resource engineers and machinists think of when they are ready to research products or suppliers online.
“We are consultants first, and an online resource second. It’s a win-win-win, all around. The end user saves time and validates their decision before they cut a check, the supplier establishes a relationship they may have never had, and we fulfill our mission of helping people make better decisions on their CAD/CAM business technology needs.” — Ken Wilson, Founder-CEO
