Eagle Point Software, the creator of the Pinnacle Series e-learning solution, has announced the acquisition of CADLearning from 4D Technologies. On July 27, 2023, Eagle Point acquired the CADLearning businesses, including intellectual property and digital assets while assuming responsibility for supporting CADLearning clients.
Eagle Point and CADLearning are recognized as industry-leading providers of learning and development experiences for architectural, civil, construction, product design, and manufacturing engineers. Initially, CADLearning clients will continue to leverage the CADLearning platform and content. Over time CADLearning clients will have opportunities to access additional resources, content, and Pinnacle Series platform functionality like KnowledgeSmart skills assessments and personalized learning paths.
Microsol Resources is a proud partner of CADLearning by 4D Technologies and will transition to being a partner of Eagle Point Software, a perfect extension to our current live Autodesk Certified Instructor-led training classes.
Steve Biver, Eagle Point COO, shared, “We are thrilled to welcome CADLearning clients into the Eagle Point family, and we are committed to making the transition as smooth as possible.”
“CADLearning has a very robust library of Autodesk resources which will match well with Eagle Point’s own extensive offering of content. This acquisition will enable us to offer a more comprehensive and personalized learning experience to all CADLearning and Eagle Point customers and will certainly strengthen our overall business.”
Dan Dolan, President and Founder of CADLearning, shared, “This opportunity with Eagle Point Software helps ensure that our clients will continue to be successful. The team at Eagle Point has been an industry-leading company in the AEC and manufacturing space for more than 40 years.
“Eagle Point’s commitment to the success of its customers was a key consideration and driving force behind this acquisition. We are confident that all CADLearning clients are in great hands with the support of the Eagle Point Software team!”
Pinnacle Series is an AEC and manufacturing learning management solution that features a comprehensive library of videos, documents, and other development resources that enable long-term employee training, on-demand problem-solving, and digital transformation.

There will be no cost to migrate to Pinnacle during their CADLearning subscription for qualified customers. Talk to our Microsol Resources Training Coordinator for more information regarding pricing.
What will happen to the CADLearning platform and content?
Eagle Point’s Content Development Team will be reviewing CADLearning’s content and porting over any content that brings additional value to the Pinnacle Series content offering. This will happen over time with the most used content prioritized first.
Eagle Point’s Platform Development Team will be reviewing CADLearning’s platform to understand the various feature sets to see which can bring increased value to the Pinnacle Series platform. The feature sets that bring additional value will be prioritized and incorporated into the Pinnacle Series platform over time. However, the most important priority for the Pinnacle Series Development Team is the current development of the Peak Experience.
I’m a current Pinnacle Series subscriber — how does this impact me?
If you’re a current Pinnacle Series subscriber, you will not see any changes right away. Our teams are evaluating CADLearning and its content and may choose to integrate some features and functions that will benefit our subscribers at a later date.
