With more core power and performance, and new capabilities for emerging technologies, it’s never been easier to design and create with SOLIDWORKS®, the design and development solution chosen by more than 3.1 million users worldwide. Here is a sampling of what we will be featuring during our event to help improve your workflow.

  • INNOVATE – New capabilities to help you incorporate emerging technologies
  • DESIGN – More core power and performance to get your job done faster
  • VALIDATE – Greater design ideas that lead to breakthrough innovations
  • COLLABORATE – Unlock any 3D model to work with SOLIDWORKS
  • BUILD & MANAGE – Data integration from concept to manufacturing to drive business needs

Model Mania Contest

space_pilot_enterprise.jpgThink your modeling abilities are a cut above the rest? Join our LIVE Model Mania Contest and put your skills to the test! 

Model Mania is a hands-on design challenge where you will be measured on both time and accuracy. First, you are given a 2D drawing of a part. Your goal is to create that part in SOLIDWORKS as quickly and as accurately as possible. Next, you are given a modified version of that drawing; you can consider it an engineering change if you like. Your goal now, similar to before, is to make the design change as quickly and as accurately as possible. All of the entries are judged on accuracy first, and time second. Seems simple, right? We'll be the judge of that!

First prize is a SpaceMouse Enterprise, 3Dconnexion’s most advanced 3D mouse ever!

The contest is open to all current SOLIDWORKS users and will take place immediately following our launch event (during Happy Hour). Sign-ups will be taken in person only at the launch event.  Seating is limited, so get to the event early and sign up for your spot!
