Mail Call! Dear Engineering Data Specialist Man, I have been wondering about attending a SOLIDWORKS user group meeting. What are they like? Peyton M, Indianapolis Indiana. That is a good question Peyton, as a matter of fact I was in your town last night for a user group meeting. Here is how it went: After we went around the room introducing ourselves, Mike and Jon Caliguri gave a presentation on Delcam. This was the first time I had seen their […]
The next SOLIDWORKS Louisville User Group meeting – known locally as “the SLUG” – has been scheduled for Tuesday, June 21st, 2011. It will be held at the University of Louisville Henry Vogt Engineering Center. The meeting details are below. If you are located in the Louisville area and have not attended a SLUG meeting, I only have one question – why not? The topic for this meeting is “How do YOU use SolidWorks?”. Members of the local SOLIDWORKS Community […]
Last week at the Cincinnati User Group Meeting, an engineer from Oystar North America said that he downloaded a cool macro that would create multiple Isometric views. I was able to find a site that has this macro plus others that you may find interesting. The site is Lorono’s SOLIDWORKS Resources. Always remember that when you are using a macro, be sure to test it out before using it in production.
Are you like me and itchin’ to attend a SOLIDWORKS user group meeting every night of the week? Here is a handy link to help you keep up with all the user groups world wide: http://www.swugn.org/swugn/calendar.htm While there, I just happened to notice that the Miami Valley SOLIDWORKS User group is meeting tonight. Not on February 29th as earlier posted. Apparently they won’t let you book rooms at Gander Mountain on the 29th on non-leap years?

I love attending SOLIDWORKS user group meetings. The meetings themselves are usually a great time to learn something from the presenter…even if the presentation is not on the types of things you normally do with SolidWorks. (It usually turns out that I learn the most from these.) After the presentation, if you are lucky, the host of the meeting will take you on a plant tour. At the last Central Indiana SOLIDWORKS user group meeting, the presenter was fabulous. However since I was […]
A few weeks ago Peter Fischer emailed me and asked if I would like to present at an upcoming SOLIDWORKS user group meeting in Columbus. Kids, here is why it is important to pay attention in geography. Turns out there is more than one Columbus. I was thinking Columbus Ohio – a location I can get to in less than 45 minutes. Actually the meeting is in Columbus Indiana – a destination quite a bit further away. No matter, I love going […]
Have you ever been to a public library before? They’re great aren’t they? They’re a free supply of knowledge for everyone to use at his/her convenience. Your libraries may even stock books on SOLIDWORKS if your city is hip enough. But even better than a library is a live SOLIDWORKS User Group (SWUG) meeting. Whether you want to become more efficient at work or you’d like to network with others facing the same challenges as you on a daily basis, […]
