August is shaping up to be a busy month and I have SWUGN and PhotoView 360 to thank. Seems PhotoView 360 presentations are in high demand at SolidWorks user groups and I ‘ve been asked by a number of group leaders to present the topic. Typically I limit my user group traveling to a 4 hour one way maximum drive so I’m not able to go to every group that makes a request but I do have a couple of meetings this month.
First meeting is for the Boston Area SolidWorks User Group (BASWUG). I’ve presented for this group in the past and they always have a good meeting turnout. That’s to be expected I think when your in SolidWorks back yard. The meeting will be help on Thursday August, 18th from 5:30 to 9:00 at Nuvera in Billerica, MA. I’ll be giving a presentation covering both PhotoView 360 2010 and 2011. Julie Napolitan from SolidWorks will also be there showing plastic part design. You can see a full agenda and meeting details here.
Next stop is the Tech Valley SolidWorks User group (TVSWUG) in Albany, NY. The meeting will be on Thursday August, 25th from 5:30-9:00 at the Albany Public Library. My presentation will cover PhotoView 360 2011 as well as modo. Some members of Tech Valley group specifically asked for a look at modo so I’m going to show both. John Picinich from CADimensions will also be on hand to cover EPDM. You can see a full agenda and meeting details here. I’m breaking the rules on this one a bit, Google shows a driving time of 4 hours and 9 minutes. 😉
If you’re in the Boston or Albany area stop by and check out your local SolidWorks user group. Chances are you’ll leave with more than what you came with.
One last thing on the agenda for August is the blogger/press meeting at SolidWorks. I’ll cruise back down to Boston for this and spend a couple of days learning all about SolidWorks 2012. While I’m there I’m also going to try and find some new information on “SolidWorks V6”. It’s been a while since the CAD community has been updated on the status of “SolidWorks V6” so hopefully I’ll be able to report something. It would also be nice to have a test drive of SolidWorks Live Buildings which was shown at SolidWorks World. Fingers crossed.
