In our first presentation, Heather Hasz from DriveWorks is going to be presenting on DriveWorksXpress. DriveWorksXpress is a free design automation tool that comes pre-installed with every version of SolidWorks. If you find yourself often using Pack and Go, or Copy Tree for PDM users, this is definitely something you are going to want to see. DriveWorks will also be providing five pizza gift cards to give away!
For our second presentation, Jesse Butwinick from the Southern Colorado User Group will be repeating a presentation he did at 3DExperience World 2020, AKA SolidWorks World, covering everything you need to know about customizing the SolidWorks user interface. You will learn how to reduce the clutter, optimize your designing workflow, and make SolidWorks your own.
We know you're missing out on getting together with your SWUG friends, and that webinars and "virtual meetings" can only go so far. In response to this, SWUG leaders across the country are going to attempt a brand new type of meeting, one that's run by YOU! User Group members who participate will get have the opportunity to present their current SolidWorks problems and roadblocks to a panel of experts - plus the wider community - who will help resolve the issues, impart their wisdom, and even throw in a few tips and tricks along the way.
This unscripted meeting is uniquely suited for the virtual landscape, as attendees will be able to present their specific issues on-screen to a large audience, and still interact with their colleagues.
MEET THE CHUMPS:
David Antanavige – LISWUG
Eric Beatty – SASPUG
Todd Blacksher – SWUGONE
Daniel Herzberg – BostonSWUG
Glen Lepage – CMA-SWUG
Kameron Smith – APGSWUG
Join us - you won't be disappointed when we show you the many advantages that the 3DEXPERIENCE platform has to offer for your downstream processes as it relates to manufacturing and CNC programming.
About Mike: Mike’s passion is manufacturing and automation, coupled with helping others realize their full potential. Notable milestones: Elite AE, Author CAMWorks Handbook, CNC programmer/operator (Mills/Lathes, CMM, Laser, Plasma, Waterjet, Router).
Join us for a look at a pilot project where "Cloud meets Desktop". Components and assemblies for Omax's newest generation of waterjet machinery, designed with SOLIDWORKS on the desktop, are handed off to engineering technicians to build and test new designs using apps from the 3DCreator and Business Collaborator roles on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Presented by: Eric Beatty
Trees of Blood: We have all been there: we make a necessary change to a design, and the feature tree “blows-up” with rebuild errors. This session covers how to quickly and painlessly repair rebuild errors in part models by understanding why they happen and discussing tips, tricks, and techniques to repair them fast without ever having to delete and recreate anything. Presented by: Ed Eaton
