A Roundup of Heather’s SWUG Trip to North Carolina

Last week Heather from the DriveWorks team was on the road again! This time she headed south to visit two SOLIDWORKS User Group meetings in North Carolina.

“First up was a visit with Steve Frick at the Piedmont Triad SOLIDWORKS User Group. Steve was such a gracious host and made us feel welcome from the time we walked in until our goodbyes at the door. The meeting was small and intimate, which made it great for conversations over dinner.

I presented on DriveWorksXpress and the DriveWorksXpress Training and Certification Program. I showed folks how they can start automating their repetitive designs with DriveWorksXpress and how they can add to their CAD skills and certifications by becoming a Certified DriveWorksXpress Associate.

The next evening, I visited with the Burlington Alamance County SOLIDWORKS User Group. The “BACON SWUG” is led by James Adkins, our most recent winner of the DriveWorks Award for SWUGN Leader of the Year.

James won the award at SOLIDWORKS World 2018 due to his commitment to education.

James is the Head of the Mechanical Drafting Program at Alamance Community College. He teaches CAD to students of all ages and he’s been spreading the word about our training and certification program to help his students add to their CAD skills.

Thank you to both group leaders for opening your meetings to host us for the week! It was great to see you again and we look forward to working with you again soon.”
