SolidWorks News Roundup: win a laptop, Jon Hirschtick on YouTube and more

I have a few things to talk about today, so I figured I'd put it all into a single update than three separate ones. So here goes:

1. I got to hang out with the guys at 3DVIA last week while they shot a video with Jon Hirschtick talking about how he uses 3DVIA Mobile, and how useful it can be for other SolidWorks users. It was a lot of fun, and you can see the final video now on YouTube. Have a look.

2. The events team is giving away a Dell M6400 mobile workstation to one lucky person who registers for SolidWorks World by November 30. You can go here to read all the terms and conditions. And here's something cool–you're eligible to win even if you've already registered. So bully for you if you planned ahead.


3. Yesterday we announced a new program. We're donating $1 to Formula Hybrid for every download of SolidWorks SustainabilityXpress, up to $10,000. If you haven't downloaded SustainabilityXpress, go do it now. It's a great product, and you'll be supporting the next generation of innovators.

    I registered last month, Am I eligible to win the laptop?

  • The contest rules say that anyone who entered on or after August 4th is eligible, so assuming you meet the other criteria, I’d say yes.

  • Brian

    Just wondering what the specs are on the laptop?

    Excellent, this would be a nice price to win, and the odds don’t look to bad. Thanks

  • Seeing 3DVIA Mobile like that is pretty cool, I already saw the somewhat lame photos where they drag a 3d model in a a photograph — haha — no, but this looks useful, just a way to show off your designs on the spot. Cool.

    Man, I need an iPhone!

  • Any word on who won the Laptop yet?

  • The laptop winner has already been notified privately. The events team has no plans to announce the winner publicly.
