SOLIDWORKS WORLD 2015 Agenda header

Just over two weeks remain.  There’s still time to sign up and plan to go to SOLIDWORKS WORLD 2015.

I’m presenting 3 sessions this year:  Two identical hands-on sessions on new Drawing Zones functionality in SOLIDWORKS 2015; and one breakout session to introduce the topic of Model Based Definition in the context of SOLIDWORKS.

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.
