My SWW16 Agenda: Tips and Tricks 2016 with Phil Sluder


One of my favorite parts of SOLIDWORKS World each year is deciding on my objectives and choosing my sessions. And my backup sessions. And my backup backup sessions. This year, I thought I’d share with you some of the sessions I chose and why.

I cannot count the number of times I’ve heard Phil Sluder introduced as someone who has not only attended each and every SOLIDWORKS World, but who has presented at each and every SOLIDWORKS World. This was the very first session that was ever suggested to me and along with the presentation suggestion, Richard Doyle gave me some friendly advice – show up early! He wasn’t kidding. The first time I tried to attend, I was turned away at the door. The room was already packed, with people standing behind the back rows and along the walls. As Bryan Ray put it when I asked him what his favorite SOLIDWORKS World session was, “Phil Sluder – if you can get into the room.”

Here are a couple of teasers to get you excited about Phil’s presentation in Dallas:My SWW16 Agenda: Surface Offset

I’m certain Phil has some new tricks up his sleeve for 2016. Be sure to check out his SOLIDWORKS Tips and Tricks 2016 presentation on Tuesday from 10:30am-12:00pm! Until then, you can check out previous years over on the SOLIDWORKS World Proceedings Site.

Is there a session on the agenda you think everyone should see? Let me know which one and why and I’ll let everyone know! Email me at As always, thanks for reading! See you in Dallas!
