November 2023 Stats
Work In Progress
So here we are in December and our last edition for 2023. With the Christmas break on the horizon, this has been one of our busiest months this year, and most jobs on record for December! So, we’ve got plenty to do before we close on Friday, December 22nd. We hope everyone will recharge and enjoy the festivities before we open again on January 3rd.
Please read on to see a couple of highlights we’ve picked out from 2023, and if there are any services, products, or areas of interest you’d like us to cover in future editions, please let us know.
Our top three firsts
Again, we are enjoying various projects with clients from many sectors. From large international companies to start-up single entrepreneurs, we have provided CAD support to bring their ideas to fruition. We’re delighted to have had a 20% increase in jobs this year! And here are three firsts from 2023 that we’d be happy to replicate in the future…
Helping to inspire the next generation of engineers
A sunny May Saturday saw the return of the Soapbox Derby at the Westbury White Horse, with many inspiring entries hurtling down the steepest course in the UK. We provided the engineering drawings for the Westbury & Warminster Youth Club soapbox, so we were delighted to see their model in action! This was a great practical opportunity for young students to work through the design and manufacturing process and hopefully inspire them to explore a future in engineering.
Business growth and cause to celebrate six years trading
June marked six years since Tim set up White Horse CAD, and the office moved to accommodate our growing team, client projects, and CAD equipment.
One notable piece of equipment was the Creality K1 3D printer. The printer has proved to be ultra-fast and accurate. It’s been in action making replacements for obsolete parts, 3D models for design validation and prototyping, and printing parts for our Tensometer. The investment has been worth it, as we’ve turned around requests quickly to benefit the client.
Trainee Engineer Success
Our Trainee Engineer, Luke, joined WHC, having completed his Level 3 BTEC in Engineering. He’s been with us for over a year and continues to show great progress, completing many jobs and learning along the way. He is an asset to the team.
Alongside working with clients, Luke also picks up internal projects, including our own Tensometer to measure the strength of our 3D Prints. It’s a handy kit that helps us test and reassure clients about the strength of materials.
