SOLIDWORKS World 2016 – Why You Should See MY Session

SOLIDWORKS World 2016 will be here before you know it, and it’s time to start thinking about the sessions you will attend.  Over the next couple of months, we’re going to ask SOLIDWORKS World presenters to come here and convince you that their session should be on your list.

Today we’ll hear from Cory Derico, a longtime SOLIDWORKS user, instructor, CSWE, and Portland Area SOLIDWORKS User Group leader.


Surfacing: An Introductory Overview for Beginners (hands-on)
A beginners look at what surface modeling is, feature options and the nuances of surfacing, to help alleviate the fears faced by those unfamiliar with the tools. A view into when surface modeling should and should not be used.

Are you are one of the users that the mention of the word “surfacing” scares you? Are you wary of any model containing surfaces? Maybe you are someone who is just starting to learn the features? Attend this hands-on session to develop knowledge of what the tools are doing and how to work with them. The goal of this session is not mastery, but of understanding. The hands-on will allow you to follow along and use the tools in sync.

I chose this topic due to the number of SOLIDWORKS users I have associated that simply do not understand how the surfacing features work, and refuse to work on the models or pass on the work. This will be my first time presenting at SOLIDWORKS World, and only the second time that I’ve been able to attend.

Thanks Cory, we’ll see you next year in Dallas, Texas!
