SolidWorks World Mon 1-23

When I walked in the 1st general session Monday morning it amazed me as to the size and vibrancy of the SolidWorks community represented in the hall.

Caught a quick sneak peak at the 2007 as John McEleney showed a few of his favorites. The folks from NextEngine also showed their 3D scanner and how it’s integrated into SolidWorks. Pretty cool stuff.

I am a fan of the Myth Busters and thoroughly enjoyed there talk. Never knew salami could power a rocket. My favorites are when it involves speed or something blowing up. Go figure…

Finished the day out with the annual SWUGN (SolidWorks User Group Network) advisory board meeting. The meeting was well attended and we had some great discussions about where we area and where the group wants to head in the future.

Ended the evening at the ESPN Sport Zone with the other CSWP’s (Certified SolidWorks Professionals) included the ones that just passed the test on Sunday. A great was had by all and I never realized you could actually bowl backwards.
