SolidXperts is excited to announce two SWUG meetings happening next week. We’ve been invited to attend, the only VARS to be invited in fact, and we want everyone to join us!
A ‘SOLIDWORKS User Group’ is a community-based group of software users that meet periodically to talk about SOLIDWORKS and its updates. They offer presentations and lessons to newcomers and engineering students and provide the opportunity for SOLIDWORKS users to network with others in their area.
First up, the Northern Vermont SOLIDWORKS User Group has its next meeting planned for Tuesday, September 18th, from 5:30pm to 9:00pm at Vermont Technical College’s Williston Campus, 201 Lawrence Place, Room 207 Williston, VT. Open to existing SOLIDWORKS customers, prospective customers, engineering students, and anyone with an interest in CAD, the group provides an environment that allows users to improve their knowledge and skills with the design software. Entrance to the meeting and group membership are free and light refreshments will be served.

Next, the New Hampshire SOLIDWORKS User Group meeting will be on Thursday, September 20th in the Amphitheatre at 200 Innovative Way, Nashua, NH. Things kick off at about 5:30pm with a meet & greet, followed by a presentation by the famous Sal Lama, Director of Product Definition at SOLIDWORKS. If you have never seen a Sal presentation, you…are…missing…out! Both the meeting and group membership are free, and meetings are open to the public and all SOLIDWORKS user experience levels.

John will be talking about all the new features that have been added over the last four years.
