Whether you manage a small machine shop or a product development team at a major enterprise, SolidProfessor for Business can help you achieve your engineering design goals with our online training platform.
As a body manufacturer focusing on work trucks, Knapheide designs everything
from service bodies to platforms. And in looking for a tool to take their
engineering design team’s skillsets and experience to a higher level, they
needed something that could train new employees while keeping their design
teams learning and engaged.
Rather than trying to keep up with the latest volumes of text-heavy reference
guides and books, Knapheide switched to SolidProfessor’s online engineering
training platform to meet their needs.

troubleshooting with each inquiry using SolidProfessor’s search tool.
