New Shop Floor Exhibit at SOLIDWORKS World

February 2, 2018

I ran across SOLIDWORKS article announcing that SOLIDWORKS World 2018 is going to be featuring a “Shop Floor” booth, which seems really interesting to me. After having attended many SOLIDWORKS World conferences in the past, I can say that in previous years, focus hasn’t always been on manufacturing, but mostly on design and analysis. However, it seems like the dynamic is steadily shifting to encompass both design and manufacturing in recent years. So, the fact that SOLIDWORKS is going to be encompassing and highlighting increasingly more products that support and enhance the interaction between design and manufacturing is encouraging.
