My SolidWorks World Sessions – Day 2, 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Since the "off-site event" is on-site this year, you won't have to rush to your room and back to the bus line after this session.  Soak in some great information, take your time changing into your rockin' clothes, and we'll see you at the show.

25 Things You Need to Know About Getting Images from SolidWorks
Robert McGaughey, CATI
This session promises 25 things, and I'm tempted to sit in just so I can count them.  A better reason to attend this session is to learn some tips and tricks for creating great images from SolidWorks.

The Seven Wonders of Windows 7 for CAD Professionals
Simon Floyd, Microsoft
I think the new Windows 7 commercials are pretty clever ("I'm a PC, and Windows 7 was my idea.").  I'm still using XP, but I'll be upgrading soon so this might be a good session to sit in on.  The abstract that Simon submitted is one of the best I've seen, clearly laying out what will be presented here.

Sheet Metal – Why Do I Do It Like This or That?
Wayne Tiffany, ASI
This is one of the most comprehensive sessions on SolidWorks sheet metal tools that you will ever see.  On top of that, Wayne is one of the most energetic speakers you will ever see.  Combine the two facts and I don't see how you can miss this one.

Stump the Chumps
Jeff Mirisola, JRM Consulting
This session is back after a one-year hiatus, and the format has been changed slightly.  You'll be able to ask some live questions, but only after all of the  pre-submitted ones have been answered.  The panel is impressive too, with lots of names you'll recognize.  Go ahead and get there early, this one is going to be packed.

It's been a long day, but I'm ready to "Walk This Way" to the special event before getting "Back in the Saddle" for the final day of SolidWorks World 2010.  After a couple of very long days, you might feel a bit like a "Rag Doll", but SolidWorks World is all about "Livin' on the Edge", so let's keep going.
