Presentation Topics

Advanced Mate Controller

Chris Mowatt, Trimech Application Engineer

Learn how the Advanced Mate Controller tool can simplify motion in your assemblies. Control moving parts, simplify design reviews, perform clearance verification, and create impressive animations with this new tool.

Chris Mowatt is a mechanical engineer with a passion for aesthetics! He is a Certified SOLIDWORKS Expert and Application Engineer at TriMech. In his previous role as an engineer, Chris was responsible for creating SOLIDWORKS assemblies of custom tooling and downstream automation cells to quote projects for potential customers. "I regularly created renderings of my designs to enhance these quotes and boost the likelihood of a sale," Says Chris. "Now that I’m working at Trimech, I get to play with all of the newest SOLIDWORKS products and my current favorite is absolutely SOLIDWORKS Visualize!"

SOLIDWORKS Admin Portal and Online Licensing

Salih Alani, SolidWorks Tech Support

This presentation will teach attendees about the my.SOLIDWORKS Admin Portal, including how to manage licenses and assign products to users, along with troubleshooting Admin Portal issues. User Group members will also learn about the new SOLIDWORKS Online Licensing tools, which ties licences to your my.SOLIDWORKS account, which can be used on multiple machines, and requires no license server. 

Salih Alani, SOLIDWORKS Technical Support Engineer, supports core SOLIDWORKS, DraftSight, as well as 3DContentCentral. He is a graduate of Northeastern University with a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, specializing in mechanics and design.
