YSWUG Winter Meeting, Tuesday February 16th, Michael Steeves and Sketch Driven Sheet Metal Assembly

 Our next users group meeting is coming up on Tuesday, February 16th, 6 – 8pm, at Yakima Maker Space with a visit from Michael Steeves from Quest Integration giving his SolidWorks World presentation on brewing with Composer and Chris Scarlett from ED&I presenting a portion of his course from Pluralsight on a Sketch Driven Sheet Metal Assembly.  Please don’t miss this informative meeting.  And make contact if you would like to attend, so we can make plans.

 In Short -  we will:  Eat some pizza and drink some pop, hear presentations from Michael Steeves and Chris Scarlett win some cool raffle prizes and explore Yakima Maker Space.  Details follow:


First, we will welcome, for the fourth year in a row, our YSWUG winter meeting presenter, Michael Steeves who will give us his SolidWorks World presentation titled “Brewing With SOLIDWORKS Composer”.  Not only will he show us how to brew beer but he will cover a fun and interesting application of SOLIDWORKS Composer that can be used to create an interactive animation that any home brewer can put to use.

 Then Chris Scarlett will demonstrate a portion of his Pluralsight course on a “Sketch Driven Sheet Metal Assembly”.  He will demonstrate the creation of a 3D Sketch, on top of the feature manager that will drive the design of each sheet metal part.   

 SOLIDWORKS CLINIC: Send me any problematic SolidWorks files or design issues for submission to our SolidWorks Clinic.  I will make these available in upcoming meeting notices so we can work out a solution before the meeting.  At the “Clinic” we will discuss various remedies to solve whatever ails your SolidWorks files. 

 RAFFLE: A raffle drawing will be held at the end of the meeting with various prizes from our meeting sponsors including: The Rapid Group which will be providing various $25 gift certificates and other fun prizes.  There will also be some great new prizes from the SolidWorks Users Group Network.  Plus some ball caps provided by SigmaNEST.  As one of our meeting sponsors, please consider the Rapid Group , for "Quick Turn Metal Prototypes - 24 Hour Quotes - 48 Hour Expedites - 1-2 Week Standard Ship - ITAR Registered".   The Rapid Group will be providing some generous $25 gift cards for raffle prizes at the end of the meeting. 

 Dinner: will be pizza and pop - served at the beginning of the meeting and available all evening  Or, for a change, I am open to suggestions.
