SolidWorks World 2010 Day 1: General Session

So the first general session of SolidWorks World 2010 has ended, and wow…talk about cool. If you couldn't be here, I'll list a few of the highlights:

  • Dassault Systemes CEO Bernard Charles talking about his vision for he future of SolidWorks and 3D
  • An electric roadster designed and built in collaboration with Mike North and Factory Five racing. SolidWorks CEO Jeff Ray even drove it out onto the show floor.
  • The announcement of "Let's Go Design," a new web video series hosted by our very own Jeremy Luchini.
  • A look at some really cool new technology we're working on in our labs, which was shown running on a netbook, an iMac, and a multi-touch interface. Oh, and everything was being done in the cloud.

I was lucky enough to get a few interviews with today's speakers before the show. First we have a quick discussion with Bernard Charles about the future of design, and Fielder Hiss and Austin O'Malley talking about the new tech.
