This year's SOLIDWORKS World was attended by over 5600 SOLIDWORKS Users, Resellers, and Partners.
We were joined by Mike Rowe of the Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs. Mike discussed his experience traveling the country in search of America's Dirtiest Jobs.
Also, we were introduced to a variety of SOLIDWORKS Customers that are doing extraordinary things. There was a great presentation from the Howe Brothers of Howe & Howe Tech (AKA The Black OPS Brothers). We saw how SOLIDWORKS Customers Neptune Canada and Quirky(Objet Owner and Enthusiast) are introducing crowd sourcing to help solve their industry challenges.
