“As an organization, Athena has significantly improved our ability to build, detail, manufacture simple and complex frames. Architects continue to be impressed with how we can quickly build 3D models of their frames and aid them in designing their unique curtain walls”.

“Patriot Glass has been using Athena 2010 for about 4-5 months now. This program allows us to produce composite metal Panel fabrication drawings in just 5 easy clicks of the mouse. Once you have completed your Vertical and Horizontal wall Sections, you are just moments away from having complete block cut sizes with all appropriate router and fold lines. Don’t worry about having to dimension all the router and fold lines Athena dimensions this for you. Not only is Athena great
For panel fabrication, it is also a great Curtain wall and Storefront shop drawing tool. Athena
allows you to create fully Dimensioned multiple bay frames with the same ease as the panel Fabrication drawings. I would recommend this program For anyone who is in the commercial glazing business. This program will allow you to spend less time on shop drawings and More time on day to day tedious tasks”.
“Athena is full of tools that cater to the metal panel and glazing industry. It takes many steps out of the everyday Auto Cad Procedures needed to draw certain Curtain Wall and Storefront shop drawings. In addition, the 3D tools make it easy to Illustrate and design complicated structures that would otherwise take and immense amount of time to produce”.
“We have tried numerous programs and once we found Athena the search stopped. We finally found a program built by curtain wall people for curtain wall people. It is by far the easiest program to learn because unlike most programs out there it works inside of a AutoCAD. The Glazer Center could not have been more helpful while we were getting to know Athena. There is always someone there to answer your questions and their training video library is a great way to learn.”

“Jason Soles and the staff at the Glaziers Center are excellent to work with for your Auto Cad needs when doing shop drawings. Their program Athena interfaces with Auto Cad and uses industry specific details which can be saved in a library and reduces the time for shop drawings dramatically. Their hands on approach and training are top notch”.

“While I was the Director of R&D for the Alumil Group, we had the pleasure of meeting the people from Athena at an international trade fair in Europe. After being completely impressed by a presentation they gave to us at the fair, we decided to try the software. We were so satisfied with the software that we decided to purchase 50 licenses for all of the engineers in the Alumil Group. What impressed us the most was the easy learning curve due the familiar Auto Cad environment and the direct link to Logikal which contains a complete database with all of our products and profiles. For the Alumil Group the decision to use Athena was one that moved us years ahead of the competition. In my opinion Athena is the best software available for facade engineering, and curtain wall designing”.
“I had a project consisted of two 20 ft. high segmented curtain wall elevations that got narrower towards the top. In addition to that the elevations had a 7 degree slope. It was amazing how you can get just a wireframe from the elevations and fill in all extruded parts in just a few commands. The cutting and miter parts were easy to dissect from the drawings. It was a smooth transition from the drawings to our shop. Glaziers Center has been phenomenal in training for answering every question thrown their way and explaining in detail of how things work in ATHENA. They were also very cooperative and helpful throughout the Hidden Oaks Nature Center project”.
“The Glaziers Center Online Training was top notch. The instructors took their time and explained every facet of every tool. I especially appreciated the part where they had us go hands on and prove we understood the training. As much as I do not want to admit, there were times we did not fully understand and the instructors patiently helped us along until we were proven. We have been using Athena for a little over a year and Athena has proven to be a tremendously valuable
tool. We have become more efficient, our turn-around times in producing shop drawing has decreased,and we have added additional services to our customers in Cut Lists and Glass Lists. End result, we are a much more efficient and profitable company today”.

“I was once told that “without my Athena I’ll quit”. At the time I thought this statement a little over the top. I have been a CAD user since 1987. I have worked in the automotive, aerospace, and lately the glazing business. Been round the block so many times I get dizzy. What can you guys tell me about my work? Well I have to eat those words again. I too am a believer in the above statement. Take away my Athena and I quit. This system is for believers. Those who believe in progress, accuracy & productivity. The people who designed it know what we need and following their lead is not arduous. The learning curve is steep but the help is there in the form of on-line training, videos’ and phone-in help. We drafters are impatient people. We want the answers now. My word to you is Buy yourself Athena”.
"Glaziers Center has been extremely helpful with setting up our new software and answering all of our questions. We are very pleased with the high level of quality, not only of the software, but service as well."
