This year's SLUGME (SolidWorks Largest User Group Meeting Ever) is scheduled for November 15th, 2017. Expect great presentations from SolidWorks experts across the country, a ton of prizes, and best of all: pizza. We're still looking for a venue large enough to host three of New England's User Groups: BANSWUG, CMA-SWUG, and NHSWUG. Contact us if you have suggestions.

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 Echo Dot from DriveWorks, and a robotics kit from" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Rapid!
