Be a 4D Advocate on LinkedIn

Be a 4D Advocate on LinkedIn


The 4D Technologies LinkedIn page is officially up and running! As we continue building the 4D brand, we’ll regularly post updates on our page. With your help, we can greatly expand our reach and engagement with customers, prospects, and other key stakeholders.

We all know that people do business with people they know, like, and trust. Don’t be afraid to comment, like, or share another colleague’s post. That’s what being social is all about!

According to a report from We Are Social and Hootsuite:

  • People are 3 times more likely to trust content shared by people they know than content shared by brands.
  • People are 8 times more likely to engage with content shared by employees than content shared by brands.
  • People are 24 times more likely to reshare content shared by employees than content shared by brands.
  • Leads generated by employees convert 7 times more frequently than any other kind of lead.

A simple reaction such as a like, comment, or share from you will help us reach our target audience in ways our page can’t achieve on its own.

What’s everyone reading?

What’s everyone reading?


When we are not all working hard this summer, some of us have been spending time getting lost in a good book or two. Or, a detailed pool manual, whatever your cup of tea may be! We thought it would be fun to share a few books some of our coworkers have been reading this summer, and to compile a list for others to get inspiration from.

Susan is reading Stephen King’s re-release of The Stand. Here is what she had to say about it: “it had some very interesting takes on human condition in a post-apocalyptic world.”

Nick C. is reading Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows to his 8-year-old daughter and is reading Steel Beach by John Varley himself. Nick says his daughter has “Harry Potter fever now.”

Luis is reading a book written by his sister-in-law Karen M. McManus titled Cousins.

Kelly is reading the pool manual to her soon-to-be NEW pool!

Sean recently re-read Bones of the Moon by Johnathan Carroll.

Haley is in the middle of Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. She says “Think; Prince William meets John Kennedy Jr. -romantically!”

And Dawn says she loves anything from James Patterson for her summer reading list.

Publishing Update 6/25/2021

Publishing Update 6/25/2021

Afternoon everyone and happy Friday!
I’m here with an exciting Publishing update.  An all new AutoCAD Electrical product is now live on portal! This is a total makeover; new videos, new datasets, new questions, and a new assessment. As such, the old AutoCAD Electrical IEC product has been deactivated and is no longer available in portal.
We’ve also pushed out a handful of new and updated Navisworks lessons to fully flesh out a few topics in that product. More lessons are currently in the pipeline and should be available soon™.
The Content Team has also been very, very hard at work on some projects that are part of our Content as a Service initiative. We have completed a ‘Phase 1’ of both NCCER and Fusion CAM Turning custom content. This content was developed a bit different than how we do internally (which brought unique challenges), but it’s been a learning experience through which we’ve come out the other side side stronger. A BIG shout-out and thank you to Nick, Ash, and Andrea for their efforts on these projects. Their lift was large and they absolutely slayed it.
As always, you can consult the publishing spreadsheet for a list of the newly published content.

Thanks again to everyone on the Content Team. Have a wonderful weekend!
