Things in Dallas to do before and after 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024

Dallas! Yup, 3DEXPERIENCE World 2024 is going to be in Dallas, TX. It’s a first, and not really a first. The first 3DEXPERIENCE World in Dallas, yes. But, upon the incarnation of SOLIDWORKS World, Dallas is well-travelled land, having been held here in 2016 and 2019.

Even though we’ve been here before, things change over time. Some would argue the world is a different place now. As such, this things-to-do list for Dallas is updated. Also, you might’ve noticed that the list returns to SolidWorks Legion, as least for this year. It’s been on the Corporate Blog for a number of years. However, the Corporate Blog has an abundance of user-centric content planned for World this year. I hope you look forward to their posts as much as I!

As always, none of these places or sites are endorsed. This is just a list of interesting things to see and do while visiting Dallas.

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.
