On The Road With DriveWorks’ Heather
This week Heather from the DriveWorks Team has been out and about attending several events where she was able to talk with both SOLIDWORKS and DriveWorks customers.
Supporting Our Resellers
The first stop for Heather was Computer Aided Technology’s Design Innovation Summit on 4th October.
This very successful and well attended event hosted a full agenda including ‘What’s new in SOLIDWORKS 2017’. CATI Application Engineers also presented on everything from SOLIDWORKS Electrical to SOLIDWORKS Simulation to discussions around 3D Scanning and Rapid Prototyping.
DriveWorks was a proud sponsor of this event and we had a booth in the “Productivity Zone” where we were able to talk with SOLIDWORKS customers, existing DriveWorks customers and others interested in learning about our software.
Another Great Meeting
On Wednesday 5th October Heather headed to the Western Massachusetts SOLIDWORKS User Group, held at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts with group leader John Matrishon.
For those who may not know John, he is one of the founding members of the Bacon Brotherhood at SOLIDWORKS World. While there was no bacon served at this meeting, it was well attended with a combination of students, teachers and local SOLIDWORKS users.
Jay Pinheiro, Sales Engineer at Fisher Unitech, started the evening with an engaging discussion and presentation about SOLIDWORKS Productivity Tools.
Heather then presented about DriveWorks and DriveWorksXpress, showing the attendees just how simple it is to “Activate to Automate” and save time in some of your same but different daily design work.
Closing out the evening group leader, John Matrishon, gave a small glimpse of a project that he is currently working on where he is designing a cigar box guitar. He also showed off a guitar made for him by Central Florida SWUG leader Casey Gorman.
From One Part of the State to Another!
Heather hit the road once again on Thursday evening to attend and present at the Rhode Island/Southern Massachusetts SOLIDWORKS User Group meeting, RISOMA, held at Sensata Technologies in Attleboro, Massachusetts.
The evening’s agenda was full of content ranging from Paul Parise discussing the “Secrets of the Universe, using SOLIDWORKS” to Heather presenting once again on how easy it is to “Activate to Automate” DriveWorksXpress inside of SOLIDWORKS.
Tom Cote closed the meeting with his own presentation discussing ‘The Implementation of a PDM System’.
This was a great meeting and there was also some really tasty food for the attendees who had the pleasure of dining on ‘as close as you can get to homemade’ Polish American food (pierogis, kielbasa and golabkis) provided by Patti’s Pierogi in Fall River, Massachusetts – they have been on the Food Network!
Thanks to Robert Wing, group leader, for having us sponsor and present at this meeting!
