Time Presentation
9:45am – 10:00am Registration
10:00am – 10:45am

What is Model Based Definition (MBD) and Why Should I Care?

In this session we’ll clear up some of the common misconceptions about Model-based Definition(MBD) and why it is being adopted, discuss things to think about when rolling out MBD, and show an example of leveraging MBD in SOLIDWORKS, SOLIDWORKS CAM, and CAMWorks.  Could MBD help your company?  Be sure to attend this session and find out.

10:45am – 11:45am

The SOLIDWORKS Data Management Roadmap: What’s Next in PDM and PLM

SOLIDWORKS and Dassault Systèmes have introduced new data management solutions for both new and existing businesses. In this session, you will learn about new tools that were introduced in 2018 and will be rolling out in the not too distant future. An InFlow application engineer will be available to get you the information needed before taking next steps in leveraging your engineering data.

11:45am – 12:30pm Lunch, Networking, and Exhibits (Stratasys, Creaform, Roland, Desktop Metal, and InFlow)
12:30pm – 1:15pm

Design Optimization – Virtual Prototypes in SOLIDWORKS

SOLIDWORKS Simulation and SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation have great optimization functions that allow you to create virtual prototypes of your designs starting from even the most basic concept.  See how this is done using Simulation and Flow on real life examples involving  structural and thermal analysis.

1:15pm – 2:00pm Networking and Exhibits (Stratasys, Creaform, Roland, and InFlow)

** Just added extra session hosted by InFlow Technology
(Bellevue, Denver, and Wichita only)

2:30pm – 4:00pm

Take Charge of Your Designs With CATIA and SOLIDWORKS

CATIA and SOLIDWORKS, combined with the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, can make for a powerful solution to your product development and design challenges. During this presentation, InFlow will show how you can use CATIA and SOLIDWORKS together as one solution. In addition, there will be a live look at CATIA on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.
