A Fond Farewell to Haley Stevenson

A Fond Farewell to Haley Stevenson


Today is Haley’s last official day with 4D, so we’re taking a moment to celebrate her hard work and wish her a fond farewell. While we’re sad to see Haley go, we’re excited to see where her next adventure takes her.

And adventure is the key word, as Haley is literally going to strike out into the wilderness as a hike leader! How cool is that? Of course, she is also going to do some neat stuff in the marketing and engagement world for the Friends of the Smokies, an organization that she has volunteered with for several years.

Haley – Thank you for your passion about your customers, your great attitude, and your willingness to take on any new challenge. Please don’t be a stranger!

When You Need an Assist

When You Need an Assist

Asking for help isn’t easy. That’s part of the reason we created CADLearning Assist – so our customers don’t have to ask for help. It’s right at their fingertips in their favorite Autodesk products whenever they need it.  

Check out this marketing video we created to showcase just that. 

A big thanks to Andrea, Ash, and Luis and his family for filming the scenes!

The Furry Overlords Strike Again

The Furry Overlords Strike Again

“In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.” – Terry Pratchett

In June, we celebrated Bring Your Dog to Work Day with photos of our canine collaborators. Last Friday, our feline friends took center stage for National Cat Day!

So, without further ado, meet the cats of 4D…




Kitty owns Dave





Shanks owns Ash (and Edith, the pup!)




Madness and Lunacy own Andrea





Daisy and Jackson own Susan





Noel, Panini, and Precious own Kelly


Did you know? Celebrated on October 29, National Cat Day was founded in 2005 by Animal Welfare Advocate, Collen Paige, to shine a spotlight on the nearly 3 million cats that enter shelters every year.

So, let’s take a moment to appreciate all the contributions cats have made to society and our lives – from domesticating themselves to taking the internet by storm, reducing our risk of heart disease, and just loving us unconditionally. Hope your National Cat Day was paws-itively wonderful! 🐈
