Submitted by on August 27, 2015 – 2:55 pm

Sorry to those of you who missed it, we gave away TONS of prizes!

  • Starbucks Gift Cards
  • Gas Cards
  • Erik’s Deli Cafe Gift cards
  • SolidWorks swag including a cool SolidWorks K-SWISS backpack!

Special thanks to all of those who donated prizes:


Data in the Cloud Computing
Panzura came out and presented their technology.  Interesting stuff that can help with multi-site / data replication.  It even works with Enterprise PDM.  Remember, it’s all about the latency…

Special thanks to our food sponsor AccelBiotech!

3D Scanning
Our friends at Hawk Ridge did a presentation on 3D scanning. Great information for those working with STL files and other non-NURBS software.

Sculpteo dropped by and presented their 3D printing service. Nothing that we’ve haven’t heard of before. BUT, they did mention that they are looking for modelers for hire!

SolidWorks / Applications in the Cloud? Absolutely!
Frame shows us that you can run SolidWorks on ANY platform using their servers. Great things is the cost! About the same price as a monthly subscription to WOW!

Our buddies at Tobar industries gave us some great tips-tricks for sheet metal design/manufacturing. Lot’s of great information.

Next Meeting
We’re shooting for October. We’ve got something pretty special planned. Let’s shoot for 100+ attendees and make the Silicon Valley SolidWorks User Group the best in the country…
