Job Openings: none at this time, please check back.

Our Recent SPRING MEETING 2017:  We had a fun and busy meeting, competing a bit with a pottery class, with a presentation post view from SolidWorks World.  Michael Steeves of Quest Integration demonstrated his “Model Mania LIVE” presentation where he looked back at the nearly 20 years of part designs for the popular SWW contest providing insight into modeling speed and model integrity.  Then Chris Scarett presented his SWW2017 presentation on “Applying Weldments to Create a Bolted Structure” where he demonstrated a technique using Weldment Strucutal Members in the creation of a powerline tower model as an example.

Thinking about future meetings,  If you want to present to the group on any technical topic related to SolidWorks please let me know, we would love to have you.  Please contact Chris Scarlett.

Hosting Future Meetings:  If your firm is willing to host and give us tour of your facilities that would be most welcome.  Please let me know if you can help here by emailing Chris Scarlett.  One additional advantage to hosting is that it provides some additional funds (that would normally go to renting a room) that we can use to serve a more interesting and compelling dinner fare.

PRESENTERS:  If you have a suggestion on a speaker or topic for any meeting or if you would like to present, please contact Chris Scarlett.
