Presentation 2

Master Modeling Techniques for Plastic Part Design - 

Laura Nickerson, Fisher-Unitech


When designing form-driven products, we may want to initially design a single, Master part. From the Master Model, we separate out the individual components. The beauty of this technique is any changes made to the Master will propagate to the child components, speeding up our design process. 

Attendees will gain a better understanding of the Master Modeling and Hybrid Modeling techniques, and will learn the SOLIDWORKS tools available for plastic product design that will streamline workflows and speed up the design process.


Laura Nickerson is an Application Engineer with Fisher Unitech. She has 17 years of experience in the consumer appliance industry working as an industrial designer and mechanical designer. Laura is detail-oriented, a problem solver, and is listed as co-inventor in over 40 patents.
