Heather’s DriveWorks SWUGN Tour of Canada

Heather’s DriveWorks SWUGN Tour of Canada

May 16th, 2018 / Posted by Danielle Brown

Heather has returned from another great DriveWorks SWUGN Tour of Canada! Last week she travelled from Toronto to Ottawa, where she visited with four SOLIDWORKS user groups.

The first two stops on Heather’s tour were at the Toronto SWUG and the Western Ontario SWUG. These two meetings occurred at colleges, which were great venues for the evening. Heather showed users how easy it was to start automating their designs using DriveWorksXpress – the free design automation tool included in every licence of SOLIDWORKS.

She also discussed the DriveWorksXpress Training and Certification Program and explained to the groups how they can enhance their CAD skills and add to their certifications by becoming a Certified DriveWorksXpress Associate.

At these two meetings, Heather also had the opportunity to catch up with a couple of DriveWorks customers – Florica Tudora from Fortress Technology and Chris Zona from Blue Giant Equipment Corporation.

Later in the evening Lee Herron, Applications Engineer at Javelin Technologies, told the attendees a little bit more about DriveWorks Solo and DriveWorks Pro.

The next morning, Heather hit the road and headed northeast toward Ottawa. Along the way, she made a stop in Peterborough to join Chris White for lunch. Chris is the user group leader for the Eastern Ontario SWUG. He is also the SWUGN representative for Canada that helped coordinate Heather’s tour by working with her and group leaders. Thanks Chris!

The final stop on Heather’s SWUG tour was in Ottawa with the Ottawa SWUG.

This group was small but was full of great energy and lots of questions about both DriveWorks and SOLIDWORKS certifications. The group engaged in a discussion on future meeting agenda items and how they can all contribute.

It was also time for the annual Canadian Tulip Festival held in Ottawa – a great end to the week!
