From Our Engineers- A Recap Of SOLIDWORKS World 2015

February 18, 2015

Last Thursday I left the Arizona desert after four incredible days filled with SOLIDWORKS this and SOLIDWORKS that. As I sat on the plane, I was feeling the same way I do when I sit on the couch after Thanksgiving dinner, but this time I wasn't feeling lethargic with a so-called "food-coma." Instead, I was feeling excited about the future of SOLIDWORKS and the great new products and features coming our way. So excited, in fact, I couldn't wait to share the future with you.

Future Engineers Can Take Advantage of SOLIDWORKS Resources

April 10, 2014

Nowadays, it’s not hard to find a college student or recent graduate with SOLIDWORKS experience. That's no surprise. But what is surprising to most members of industry, both rookie and veteran, is just how young some students are when they make their first sketch, create their first extrude and finish their first part using SOLIDWORKS.
