Our April 27th meeting was another great success, thanks to all of our members. We'd like to extend a special thank you to all of our presenters and sponsors who supported our meeting. The meeting was hosted by https://www.porterchester.com/campus-locations/woburn-ma/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Porter & Chester Institute in Woburn.
BANSWUG members were lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the new SolidWorks Apps for Kids suite, still in development. SolidWorks portfolio managers Justin Burton and Chin-loo Lama introduced the group to the many different design apps which are being built specifically for kids to start enjoying design and engineering from a young age.
One BANSWUG member even brought his kids along for a hands-on demo and feedback session with the developers during the breakout session. They loved it so much, they didn't want to leave!

John Nolin, Application Engineer at SolidXperts, presented a host of SolidWorks Tips and Tricks, compiled by SolidWorks developers.
At the end of the meeting, the BANSWUG committee raffled off dozens of prizes, generously provided by our sponsors. In addition to a trunkful of branded swag, courtesy of SolidWorks HQ, we also gave away nearly $200 in gift cards from our sponsors, as well as special prizes from 3DConnexion and DriveWorks!
