There’s the Food Network for foodies, CNN for news junkies and now CADCAMNETtv for those addicted to being in the know when it comes to happenings affecting the CAD industry.
The Internet-based broadcast, updated bi-weekly, serves up a news-format show, complete with a fresh-faced anchor woman, who dishes on everything from recent earnings announcements to product updates to scandals rocking the CAD world.
