Design Engine is hosting another one of our AFTERBURN events in our Chicago studio this month. AFTERBURN is a series of after-work presentations with friends (and beer) that are a great way to decompress from work, network with others in your field and drop some knowledge! All are welcome even if you are not an industrial designer or a product design engineer. Please consider RSVP so we can provide for all.

We will conduct 2 talks using both using SOLIDWORKS and PTC Creo:

Are you an irreplaceable member to your company? Do you wish to be at the top of your industry or at least on top of the latest innovations that are out there? If these are goals that you set, then you should fear complacency instead of failure. How do you remain relevant? It is no longer about how long you have been with a company but how much have you contributed.

Don’t stop learning. Keep your technical skills current. Seek out new challenges. These and other ideas will be discussed. We will also a look into a few CAD software tricks of the trade that you can take back to share with your team. Even if you are not a manager, you can be a leader.
Beer and other refreshments will be supplied.

Thursday, June 27th from 6:30 PM – 8:40 PM
