I'll be heading to the next set of sessions from a private working lunch with SolidWorks user group leaders. There are some great choices here.
System Options: Understanding the Effects on SolidWorks Documents
Kelly Frazier, THNKtions, LLC
I sat in on this presentation at the SWUGN Summit - Denver and it's a good one. Kelly goes through just about every single system option in SolidWorks - common and not so common. It's a fast-paced session, and at just an hour, will be a lot to absorb. Take lots of notes.
SolidWorks Crashes and Slowdowns - It's Not Always the Software
Jeff Mirisola, JRM Consulting
I'm proud to say that I had a hand in this presentation. Using information from a variety of sources, this session covers the myriad of factors associated with computer crashes, slowdowns, and instability. I guarantee that you will walk away with a better understanding of how to keep your system running quickly and smoothly. WARNING! The presenter is a Boston Red Sox fan.
A Mechanism Project Using SolidWorks and a 3D Printer
Randy Shih, Oregon Institue of Technology
Ever wonder what engineering students are up to these days? Here's a chance to find out as Professor Shih shows how his students design and build a small walker robot using SolidWorks and Rapid Prototyping.
Tools That Looked Good in the Demo but You Never Used
Matt Morgan, GoEngineer
Here'a an ambitious look at several different tools that you may not have used, at least on a regular basis. PhotoView 360, Motion, FeatureWorks, and SolidWorks Utilities will be covered in just one hour.
I'm a little less than half way through the week's schedule and I'm starting to get an idea on which sessions to attend. Two more blocks for Tuesday and then it's on to the last day.
