Live Demo of the Markforg3D MARK ONE Printer

As seen at SolidWorks World 2014 and 2015, this upstart 3D printing company is now shipping the MARK ONE printer, capable of printing plastics, carbon fiber, Kevlar, and fiberglass composites. The resulting components are as light as plastic but stronger than aluminum.


Introducing PD/UX Breakout Sessions

BANSWUG is piloting a new partnership with the SolidWorks Product Definition and User Experience groups! At each meeting, PD and UX representatives will host a parallel breakout session for a select few BANSWUG members (who pre-register on the Eventbrite page). Discussion topics can range from SolidWorks limitations and enhancement requests to alpha testing of new features. See the Breakout Session section below for info on this month's discussion topics.

Attendees of this month's breakout session will get a sneak peak at several new functions under development at SolidWorks.

Rob Jost: Chamfer/fillet functionality, including hands-on testing of a working prototype build.

Jody Stiles: Hole functionality, including hands-on testing of a working prototype build.

Don VanZile: An open-ended discussion about Large Assembly performance. Come prepared to talk about your experiences with Large Assemblies.

Additional discussion of other concepts, enhancement request, and questions as time allows.


Using BOMs to Represent a Family of Parts - Annie Cheung, Senior Application Consultant

"Design tables are traditionally used to manage a family of parts in SOLIDWORKS. We will compare design tables and BOMs and introduce some techniques to represent the family of a part with a BOM." Attendees were also treated to free CSWP exam vouchers.
