Sometimes we never know what will happen

We all love hearing an inspiring story. Just the other day, a friend who works in our office building, stopped by our offices and was explaining to her friend what we do here at 3DVision Technologies. As she was explaining the Stratasys 3D Printers to her friend, I just happen to walk by. I introduced myself and shared a little bit about the technology and gave them a newly 3D printed fidget spinner to take with them. Little did either […]

A college professor is not there to teach you CAD or how to use a CAD tool. They are there to teach you a profession. […]

Think Outside the Box with SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal

Well you can’t use that tool for that. One of the first days of college, our professor held up a screw driver.  He asked, “What is this, and what it was used for?” Of course we all said that it was a screw driver and it was used for screws, to drive them or to take them out. He kept the picture up and just stood there. We sat there for a few seconds and then someone spoke up and […]
