When was the last time you updated your SOLIDWORKS document templates?
Ed Eaton | DiMonte Group Inc.
Mark Termion | DiMonte Group
Ed has presented at SOLIDWORKS World and User Group meetings several times, always entertaining and educational.
There have been a lot of improvements and neat features added to document templates over the years. After you first set up your templates it’s easy to forget about them – that’s the great thing about document templates for Parts, Assemblies, and Drawings. But it also means that it’s on us to revisit them every few years to be sure we aren’t missing out on anything that could help us work better in SOLIDWORKS. In addition to the obvious document properties, during this presentation we’ll be talking about things in the feature tree, in configuration properties, in lights, etc. that are also part of the templates that will make us more productive and prevent errors. We’ll also be opening the floor for everybody to share what they have in their templates that they can’t live without!
We feel that this is an especially appropriate subject for our 25th Anniversary. This is the type of stuff we did at the beginning of CSUG, where we were all just trying to figure stuff out and share what we learned. 25 years later and we’re still learning.
We will have the usual pizza and soft drinks for refreshments, along with a door prize drawing (if we have prizes to give away). The meeting should adjourn around 8:30pm.
No RSVP necessary.
Please join us at our upcoming meeting!
Please join us in-person for the next MVSWUG meeting. We will be meeting at the AMTAC (Advanced Manufacturing Technology Adoption Center), which is part of the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI). It's located in the basement of Daniel J. Curran Place at UDRI's main office (former HQ of NCR) across from Carillon Historical Park. Please be on time to ensure that someone is available to let you into the building.

"SOLIDWORKS Simulation" by Robert Warren
Robert Warren is an Elite Application Engineer from GoEngineer (SOLIDWORKS VAR) who manages the Software Presales Simulation Application Engineer team, which focuses on meeting and exceeding customer expectations in all things simulation software. Many of you will remember Robert's brief introductory presentation in August. He has graciously offered to again travel down to Dayton to share his expertise with us, with the goal to open up opportunities for us to utilize more of the many simulation tools offered by Dassault Systèmes and SOLIDWORKS. If you want to design better products and reduce time to market, consider incorporating simulation into your development process.
Please RSVP and plan to join us on the 4th of December!
Join us at MRIGlobal North Kansas City facility for a night of food, networking and of course a GREAT SolidWorks presentation.
