After being postponed due to yet another late-winter Nor'easter, the March 29th meeting of the Boston Area North SolidWorks User Group was held at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation. Surrounded by artifacts from the American Industrial Revolution - designed without the help of CAD tools - our presenters discussed some of the most advanced areas of modern engineering software, from general tips and tricks to API coding to data disaster preparedness.
We kicked off with a brief recap of SolidWorks World 2017, the SWUGN Awards, and SLUGME! - SolidWorks Largest User Group Meeting Ever! Download the slides here:

Richard Friedman, volunteer docent at the Charles River Museum of Industry and SolidWorks API expert, presented a brief but comprehensive overview of SolidWorks API tools, including a tutorial on how to record and edit macros for automating model creation.
Attendees were then treated to a fascinating lesson on the history of the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation by the museum's director, along with live demonstrations of the belt-driven machine shop.
Half of the Bacon Brotherhood was also in attendance that night. Ed Gebo - ConnSWUG leader, SWUGN Rep, and owner of Digital Detail & Design - gave one part of the acclaimed SolidWorks World 2017 presentation containing several hidden SolidWorks tips & tricks, as well as best practices for preventing data loss in a small business setting.
