DENVER, CO, Apr 10, 2009 – The CAD Society today announced that Bill McClure and Dan Staples, from Siemens PLM Software’s Solid Edge software team, are joint winners of the CAD Society’s 2009 Leadership Award.

The CAD Society Awards acknowledge the contributions made by individuals that have affected and developed the CAD, engineering, manufacturing and architecture software industries. The Leadership award is presented for outstanding technical and business leadership in the CAD industry, and focus and dedication to the needs of CAD users.

Then owned by Intergraph, Solid Edge started life as ‘Project Jupiter’ and demonstrated some highly innovative ideas in 3D, well before 3D on a PC was mainstream.
