SOLIDWORKS CAD Event in Warrington


There are SOLIDWORKS User Groups (SWUG) all over the world. In the UK there are just two groups, one in London and one in the North of England.

SWUG meetings are set up by users, for users.

The aim of the meetings is for attendees to learn, share ideas, get inspired and make better connections amongst a network of local SOLIDWORKS users.

The SOLIDWORKS User Group based in the North of England, UK SWUG NW are returning to Warrington for the 4th year in a row to host their Christmas meeting.

Why Warrington?

Warrington is a town with a deep industrial heritage and there is still a lot of industry in the town today. Many manufacturers in the area will use the SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD package and this is a great opportunity for those users to get to know each other.

The theme of the meeting on the 3rd of December is the Importance of SOLIDWORKS in the Northern Powerhouse.

Ian Pilkington, Strategic Business Development Manager at SOLIDWORKS presents at last December’s meeting.

Local wire manufacturer, Locker Group, will be presenting at the meeting about how they use SOLIDWORKS.

Solid Solutions, a local SOLIDWORKS reseller, who provide training and support for the software, will be supporting the meeting and presenting about the new features that have been added in the latest software release, SOLIDWORKS 2019.

There will also be a presentation about Gillettes personalised 3D printed razor handles to explore how SOLIDWORKS works with 3D printing, a technology that is growing rapidly.

The meeting is free to attend, food and refreshments are provided and there will also be a Christmas quiz with great prizes to be won.

Where and When?

Monday, 3rd December, 5pm-8pm at DriveWorks, The Barley Store, Laskey Lane, Thelwall, WA4 2TF.
