Last week over 5,000 SOLIDWORKS users descended upon San Antonio, TX for SOLIDWORKS World 2011. It was a great week, filled with big announcements, inspirational speeches, presentations from SOLIDWORKS partner solutions, and Kevin Bacon. We were introduced to companies like, MAKO Surgical, Barrett Technologies, and Local Motors, all of which are leveraging SOLIDWORKS to change the world.
Bertrand Sicot took the stage as the new CEO of SolidWorks. His biggest announcement, in addition to two new product offerings, n!Fuze and Post3D, was that “there will always be a desktop solution from SolidWorks.” A point he made several times.
