Our recent SPRING MEETING: We had a fun meeting recently with about 18 people in attendance including a few of CWU's students to hear Elliot Weber's discussion titled "All in One Design" "Multi-body Part Designs using Sheet Metal and Weldment tools in SolidWorks”. He also demonstrated the new “SoldWorks Electrical”. Pizza, sub sandwiches and pop were served. Images, a video link and Elliot's model can be found at the following page link: YSWUG Spring Meeting.
SolidWorks World 2013 at Disney World's Swan and Dolphin was a blast. For some videos of the fun, including highlights from the general sessions, check out this link at the SolidWorks YouTube channel. Also, I made a video of a new 3D printer in the partner Pavilion that uses ink and printer paper as a medium. You can see this video at: Mcor Iris 3D printer.
Thinking about future meetings, The results of our recent Topics Survey are in with "Sheet Metal" and "Weldments" tying for first place followed by "Simulation", "Rendering/Photoview360/Animation", "Drawings and Detailing", "Design Tables/Excel and Configurations" and "Bill of Materials". We will soon be lining up some speakers to present on these topics. If you want to present on these topics please contact Chris Scarlett.
I have been considering a different venue for our meetings with the thought of renting a banquet room at a local Yakima restaurant. This could save the company a little money and offer us some better dinner options. Please refer to the following link for some additional information. If you have any suggestions let me know.
