I’ve been attending the San Diego SOLIDWORKS User Group meetings for over five years now and I think it’s a great way to meet other users and find out how they use SOLIDWORKS in their industry.
The San Diego SOLIDWORKS User Group (SDSWUG) meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month and the next meeting is coming up soon on August 13th from 6:30pm-9:00pm. The location is at One Heart-One Mind, 11211 Sorrento Valley Road, Suite G, San Diego, CA 92121.
6:30-7:00 Registration, Pizza / Beverages, and welcome
7:00-7:30 Release and Blog Information/Questions, Open Discussion
7:30-9:00 Main Presentation
SOLIDWORKS User Group meetings are a place to gain knowledge and further insight within SOLIDWORKS and related products, socialize, and network. People from all industries and skill levels can attend- from beginning to expert, SOLIDWORKS users and non-users- all are welcome. There are no fees and pizza and beverages will be served. In addition, there is a raffle at the end of the meeting.
At the last meeting on July 9th, Phil Sluder and the group answered several questions on Drawings and Weldments among other topics. The main presentation was on a SOLIDWORKS add-in called Power Surfacing from nPower. The tool allows for easier creation and manipulation of freeform/organic shapes using Subdivision(Sub-D) surface modeling. For more information on their product, please go to www.npowersoftware.com.
