Jeff Ray talks about Chilean miner rescue at SolidWorks World 2011 general session

Jeff Ray, former CEO of SolidWorks Corp, opened up SolidWorks World 2011.  He profiled several companies that were involved in the rescue of the Chilean miners.  The common thread for each those companies is the fact that they design their products with SolidWorks.  Schramm produces drill rigs, including the drilling of the first hole that found the miners.  Center Rock Inc made the drill bits used in the rescue operation.  Oakley provided special sunglasses to protect the miners’ retinas when they first come up from the mines.

As a drafter, mechanical designer and CAD engineer, I've been in the mechanical design field since 1991. For the first 8 years of my career, I was an AutoCAD professional. I utilized AutoLISP and many other AutoCAD customization features to streamline drafting activities for 6+ drafters and designers. I authored several custom functions, one of which was published in the March 1997 issue of Cadalyst Magazine. Since 1998, I've been used SolidWorks non-stop. I've worked to utilize the SolidWorks' user environment to simplify drafting and design activities for 20+ engineers. I've created this website to provide current information about SolidWorks from a variety of contributors. More recently, I am now employed by Dassault Systemes as SOLIDWORKS Sr. Product Definition Manager to improve drawing, annotation and MBD related areas.
