This years NEOSWUG Summer Cookout will take place on Wednesday, May 31st from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at Brushwood Lodge (4955 Townsend Rd · Richfield, OH) in the Furnace Run area of the Summit Metro Parks.

We will be providing the burgers, brats, and hot dogs with all the condiments as well as water and soft drinks.
We will be joined by Dan Wagner, Manager – SOLIDWORKS User Group Network, and Matthew Clegg, 3DExperience Works Community and User Advocacy Manager. These 2 gentleman will be traveling a long way to be with us for the evening, and we are looking forward to introducing them to the NEOSWUG Community and showing them what we are all about!
Our Presentations for the evening will be courtesy of 2 of our finest from the GoEngineer Team, both whom have presented at 3DExperience World on multiple occasions:
ROBERT WARREN, Elite AE | Product Strategy Manager - Simulation
Title**: SOLIDWORKS Simulation: A Discretization on Meshing**
Description: This SOLIDWORKS Simulation Mesh refresher covers three main topics. We'll look at the three main forms of geometry: Bulky, Thin, and Beam, and discuss the best mesh element for each. Through demonstrations of each mesh type, we will understand the effect of Draft Quality vs High Quality meshes, and why Convergence is a must for your mesh.
RYAN FIELD, Elite AE | Sr. Application Engineer
Title: Aye, Aye, Matey: A Beginner's Guide to Advanced Mating
Description: In this session, utilizing pirate-themed models, we will look at several ways to more efficiently add mates; utilizing quick mates, smart mates, and mate references. We will also look at some other tools to help navigate and manage mates. We will then examine some of the more advanced mates, including Profile Center and Width mates. We will conclude by reviewing some of the advanced mating tools, including the Mate Controller and Magnetic Mates.
On top of the special guests, and top notch presentations, we also have a box of SOLIDWORKS SWAG to give away, a $25 digital gift card, and one lucky individual will walk away with a free 1 year subscription to the 3DExperience SOLIDWORKS for Makers edition!
So come on out and join us on Wednesday, May 31st from 5:30pm to 8:30pm in a beautiful location for some great food, networking, informative presentations, and a chance to walk away with some SOLIDWORKS SWAG!
