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. Dinner 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.
