Rocket Man Explodes with Innovation at SolidWorks World 2012

Tom Atchison  Rocketman SolidWorks Showcase

When I first saw a rocket at SolidWorks World, I thought how did that fit in the elevator? How did we get a rocket past security? Would 5600 engineers and designers sneak into the Partner Pavillion at night and try to ingite the rocket?  Luckily the rocket was not set off by the engieers and I got a chance to meet one of my new heros at SolidWorks World, Tom Atchison.  Tom designed his rocket using SolidWorks and SolidWorks Flow Simulation and now works with students to inspire us all.    The video below shows his story.  If you would like to find out more about Mavericks, Mentoring Opportunities, or how to support their efforts, you can visit their website at:       Marie
