Meeting Notes

April 2016

Posted by on July 6, 2016 at 3:25 PM


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" 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.

Our thoughts affect us the most. If your thoughts are painful you will not feel good in real life as well, but if your thoughts are simple and good and you do not think bad about then you will naturally feel good.
