Richard Doyle is looking for first-timers

Ok, Richard Doyle, leader of the SoilidWorks online community, didn’t say he was “looking” for folks who will be attending their first SolidWorks World in Jan 2010.  He does have a message for first-timers, including useful advice and links.  However, I’m sure he would appreciate comments from people who are planning on attending their first SolidWorks World.  As for Richard, he has attended every one.

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.

  2. I’m 70 years old, I was a Manufacturing Engineer prior to owning my own Tooling company which I operated for 25 years. I used Autocad software in my operation Once Solid works started to become popular, I enrolled at Santa Ana college to become familiar with its versatility and I became hooked. I’m now enroll at saddleback college with their Rapid prototyping program. I’m fasinated with this new technology , is there a special fee for individuals like me who wish to attend this event without having to pay such high fees? If I had my business I would not hesitate to pay your normal fee.
    Please let me know, for I have not seen a fee for Old timers wishing to stay up with progress.

    Thank you

  3. Carlos, there are a couple of options for you. If you can afford the $199 fee, you can attend the Partner Pavillion (trade show) portion of the convention. Sometimes local VARs know of special deals and may be able to get you into that PP for free. Maybe contact the last VAR you worked with? Also, maybe leave this same message on Rich’s blog comments and see if he knows of a program.
