Welcome to the Northern Vermont SOLIDWORKS User Group Website. The Northern Vermont SOLIDWORKS User Group (NVTSWUG) was founded in December of 2004. The group’s goal is to provide an environment in which the members can advance their knowledge and abilities in SOLIDWORKS and other related products and technologies. The group also provides a great source for networking. The group is run entirely by member volunteers. Our membership is made up of designers, engineers and CAD specialist who use or have an interest in SOLIDWORKS 3D solid modeling software. Our meetings are held on week nights and generally run from 5:30pm - 9:00pm. Light snacks and refreshments are provided at every meeting. Meetings are open to SOLIDWORKS customers, prospective customers, engineering students and people interested in CAD design. All meetings and membership in the group are free.
DESCRIPTION: Join us for SLUGME! “SOLIDWORKS Largest User Group Meeting Ever” All around the country (and a couple of places outside of the US), SOLIDWORKS user group members will gather together at local meetings for food, networking, and other group business. We'll then link up with dozens of additional user groups around the world for a live simulcast presentation by Neil Custard, one of the leaders in the SolidWorks Community. Based on the number of groups that will tune in, an estimated 1000+ SOLIDWORKS users will be involved in what will truly be the SLUGME. Don't miss the biggest SWUG Meeting of the year, SLUGME!

I will go deeper into some tools and go over some other tools that I don’t see used enough and should be used more. Neil Custard has used SOLIDWORKS since its beginnings in 1996 and is one of the fastest 3D modelers on the planet having earned first place in the SOLIDWORKS World 2012 Model Mania contest in San Diego, CA. as well as placing second in 2008 and third in 2010. Owns and runs CADXpad.com (formerly SolidWorksTips.com since 1999) that has helped millions of users over its time online. My background includes years of training users, tech support, consulting and full-time engineering on some of the smallest parts to the largest in the world. What’s for Dinner? Dinner will be catered by Zachary's and will may include: Pizza, Wings, Soda, and Dessert
