If 10,000 engineers in a single room makes you a bit nervous, you’ve not seen anything yet. GrabCAD is growing like hotcakes… Yes, hotcakes grow, ON HOTCAKE TREES. And it’s a well know fact that engineers can sustain themselves for hours on nothing but hotcakes. They also enjoy sharing models and providing input on models other people share. GrabCAD happens to be the perfect place to do that and the fancy infographic they’ve put together shows you exactly why.

Check out what the most popular CAD software is and what’s going on with the GrabCAD community.
