SWUG Spotlight: Kettle Morraine SOLIDWORKS User Group

Supporting the SOLIDWORKS Community

With the support of our resellers, customers and partners, we have attended SWUG meetings, provided sponsorship and helped group leaders to find presenters with interesting presentations since 2015.

Over the years we have supported lots of group meetings by attending as SOLIDWORKS users ourselves, presenting on a technical topic or providing prizes and giveaways.

We love being a part of the SOLIDWORKS community and working with an amazing network of users.

As part of our role in the community, we wanted to put a spotlight on just some of the user groups across this network and showcase their dedication.

Join us as we shine a spotlight on SOLIDWORKS user groups and their leaders.

SWUG Spotlight

This week we are putting a spotlight on Kettle Morraine SWUG.

User Group: Kettle Morraine SWUG

Group Leader: Kim Olson

When was your group established? Approximately 15 years ago.

Why did you choose to become a user group leader? I wanted other SOLIDWORKS users to experience the same type of Aha moments I had experienced through meetings.

What is your goal as a user group leader? To make other users and their companies more proficient.

Who inspires you? There are many SOLIDWORKS magicians that inspire me. Two that I try to catch when possible are Toby Schnaars and Ed Eaton.

What is your fondest memory of your group? It was an eye-opener the first time KEMSUG joined SLUGME 2.

The format was exceptional, and everyone was engaged. Unfortunately, I didnt hear about the first SLUGME until after the event had happened. They also had great door prizes!

What advice would you give to anyone interested in starting a user group? Do it!

What’s the best piece of advice you have been given? Keep trying new techniques. It is the only way to improve.

How can people learn more about your group? Go to the meetup site shown below.

We usually meet in person at Moraine Park Technical College in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
