Guess Who is Coming to SOLIDWORKS WORLD 2016 DALLAS


One of the best parts about going to SOLIDWORKS WORLD is catching up with friends you meet once a year – every year at SOLIDWORKS WORLD.  There will be new faces this year on stage, in breakout sessions, and at the Partner Pavilion. Educators and researchers from all over the world are joining this event.  If you cannot come, you can still attend the live streaming of the event  by registering

How Fab Labs Go Started

Monday General Session will feature Neil Gershenfeld , director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms, physicist, Fab pioneer, explores the boundaries between the digital and physical world.  I was fortunate to work with Neil during the planning of Fab11 Boston last summer.  I know the SOLIDWORKS community will be inspired.


Tuesday is community packed!  The Education segment will be filled with surprises – you will have to wait.
