There will be two technical sessions:

Technical Session 1

Presentation Title: 2D to 3D

Length: 30 Minutes2d3d

Brief Session Description: Are you or anyone you know still stuck in 2D? In this presentation, you will discover an easy pathway to transition from 2D to 3D. With 3D modeling, you'll be able to realize the full potential of your designs. 3D is not only more powerful for you as the designer, but it's also a more intuitive way to convey your design intent to clients and other non-CAD users. SOLIDWORKS has the tools to simplify the transition.  See examples of how thousands of other companies and users have made the change to 3D using SOLIDWORKS.

He's always interested in cutting edge software development and customized application for design automation. His specialties include Product Data Management (PDM) strategies, custom applications for design automation (Design to Order), Finite Element Analysis, and 3D design best practice.

Technical Session 2

Presentation Title: Master Model Workflow for Designing Weldments and Sheet Metal

Length: 60 Minutes
