Presentation Topics

Design Automation with SolidWorks API 

A case study and open discussion on how the API capability in SolidWorks led to a robust design and analysis tool that resulted in components that repeatedly met structural, manufacturing, and quality inspection requirements while minimizing repeated activities.

SolidWorks Tips & Tricks from the #BaconBrotherhood

As presented at SolidWorks World 2017, this session is brought to you by the Bacon Brotherhood themselves! Ed will present real-life tips and tricks that have helped him in his daily use of SOLIDWORKS. He will close the session with a quick look at disaster recovery planning.

Attendees will learn new ways to use SOLIDWORKS with features that seem confusing or complex. The disaster recovery portion will encourage attendees to ask their IT department if a plan exists and definitely help the independent consultant that wears the IT hat along with his design hat.

Ed Gebo – Digital Detail & Design, Connecticut SolidWorks User Group
Leader, & East Coast SWUGN Representative

Accessing the Museum

While the Museum’s address is 154 Moody St. in Waltham, the museum's physical location is at the far end of the Francis Cabot Lowell Mill complex.

Because there is no Museum Visitor parking at the Mill, the museum recommends using the many public lots in Waltham. The lot closest and most accessible to the Museum is the Embassy Parking Facility off Pine St.

To then reach the Museum, cross the footbridge which crosses the Charles River and then keep to your right along the Mill. A brief 2-5 minute walk will bring you to our Visitor Entrance. The Charles River Museum is directly under the factory smokestack.
IMPORTANT: There is NO Museum Visitor Parking at the Francis Cabot Lowell Mill complex. You will be subject to tow by the Mill.

Please DO NOT BRING VEHICLES DOWN THE LANDRY WAY PATH. It is restricted to Emergency Vehicles ONLY and is a Dead End with no turnaround.

If you need further assistance or information, the Museum phone number is 781-893-5410

We look forward to seeing you at the Museum!
