Thank you making our September 22nd meeting another great success, and a special thank you to all of our presenters and sponsors who made it all possible! The meeting was hosted by FLIR Systems in North Billerica.

Meeting Introduction

We kicked off by learning a little about the launch of SolidWorks 2017 at Gillette Stadium, early bird discounts for SolidWorks World 2017 in LA, and other local CAD events. Download the slides here:" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Download Intro Slides


Chris Mowatt, Application Engineer at CAPINC, presented a comprehensive overview of the SolidWorks Visualize tool, including enhancements made in 2017.

Heather Hasz, the Stateside face of DriveWorks, introduced us to DriveWorksXpress. This powerful design automation tool is already included in every seat of SolidWorks.

Special Guests

At the September meeting, we were lucky enough to be jopined by several surprise guests!

Maria Sarkar - VP & Owner of DriveWorks

Brian Hillner - Product Portfolio Manager of SolidWorks Visualize

#FlatSWUGN - Senior Manager, User Advocacy & SolidWorks Worldwide User Groups (Two-Dimensional Division)

Breakout Session

Meanwhile, a few lucky BANSWUG members attended the SolidWorks Product Definition breakout session, where SolidWorks Product Definition Manager Rob Jost previewed several sketching and surfacing features slated for SolidWorks 2018. The feedback provided by BANSWUG members will help SolidWorks refine their products. If you're interested in shaping the future of SolidWorks, don’t forget to sign up for a breakout session for a future BANSWUG meeting.


Meeting Wrap-up

At the end of the meeting, the BANSWUG committee raffled off dozens of prizes, generously provided by our sponsors. In addition to the trunkful of branded swag, courtesy of SolidWorks HQ, we also gave away nearly $300 in gift cards from our sponsors, as well as an Amazon Kindle fire from DriveWorks!
