More importantly,students, boys and especially girls are learning job ready SOLIDWORKS skills and live-long learning skills. According to Eric,” SOLIDWORKS has allowed some of our students to get summer internships with these skills”

With their new Hass CNC, the High Rollers manufacture all their SolidWorks designs.

Thank you High Rollers for sharing with the SOLIDWORKS Community.  Good luck in the competition,  Marie
