In January 2011 the SolidWorks User Group of New York City (SWUGNYC) was formed with the support of the SolidWorks User Group Network (SWUGN). SWUGNYC is operated completely by volunteers with the aim of promoting the sharing of skills and information related to the use of SolidWorks and to create a forum for networking within the SolidWorks community. SWUGNYC considers the specific needs of New York City area users, conducting regular meetings in easily accessible Manhattan and Brooklyn locations. SWUGNYC is proud to serve some of the most passionate and creative 3D CAD users in the world. In 2012 we were awarded the SolidWorks User Group of the Year at SolidWorks World 2013.
