Pontiac, Michigan, February 9, 2010 – The CAD Academy has announced, effective immediately, DASI Solutions will be the sole representative of The CAD Academy line of products in Michigan.
This vote of confidence is a strategic validation of the fifteen years DASI Solutions has been serving the education community by supplying SolidWorks and cutting-edge Objet 3D printers to K-12 schools, community colleges, and universities throughout the region. DASI Solutions will continue to separately represent SolidWorks to educational institutions in the region and provide sales, training and technical support.
The CAD Academy provides, in addition to an engineering/architectural technology (CAD) and the Design for Engineering Academy technology (CAM), The STEM Academy (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) bundle that adds equipment to an extensive technology and curriculum bundle.

The printer is offered in two sizes, a 24” and 26” solution for everyone’s printing needs.
Gary Lowell, Education Manager at DASI Solutions comments, “I am looking forward to introducing this next great delivery mechanism for STEM education programs to educators across the state. To help do that, Russ Mickelson of The CAD Academy will be in Michigan to visit with the Michigan Department of Education during National Engineers Week to present The STEM Academy to Michigan education officials.”
Lowell continued, “Our support of the educational community includes being a catalyst for the world’s first SolidWorks Teacher User Group. The second meeting will be on Thursday, February 18, 2010 from 4:30PM to 7:00PM at Caledonia High School, 9050 Kraft Ave, Caledonia, MI 49316.”
The CAD Academy addresses the need for better engaged technical students by helping middle and high school students in North America explore technology-oriented career paths through real-world projects that deepen their understanding of science, engineering, architecture, and mathematics.
Inside The CAD Academy there is a wealth of instructional resources to help introduce students to engineering and architectural design/drafting principles and industry leading software tools that they will need for further education or industry success. The course of studies allows students to explore career paths through real-world projects, while establishing a solid foundation of STEM. These resources are industry and classroom tested with instructional materials including practical problems, lesson plans, PowerPoint’s, review questions, supplemental e-resources, multimedia content and real world project based tutorials.
The CAD Academy program brings together some of the foremost drawing and design authors to teach a foundation of engineering and architecture concepts that integrate basic math and science principles.
