THEME:

“Design for Manufacturability Using SolidWorks”

AFTERBURN is a series of after-work presentations with friends (and beer). These events are a great way to decompress from work, network with others in your field and learn a thing or two!  All are welcome!

In a competitive market where products need to be produced faster, with a higher and consistent quality at a lower cost, it’s important to streamline the workflow. SOLIDWORKS consolidates tools into a single environment, effectively eliminating the errors and intelligence gaps that often come with data translation between departments. SOLIDWORKS Design-to-Manufacturing Solution, concept to final assembly work can now happen concurrently, in one seamlessly integrated and managed system.

Design Engine will be discussing top-down design and surfacing, as it relates to plastic, die cast and sheet metal part design. Explore the part design requirements imposed on the designer by the fabrication process, and learn how to manage your data and processes.

After each presentation (and during) we will have conversation fueled by enthusiasm and a few beers.

Creo split draft

Solidworks split draft intensive. We spend an hour in this class organizing draft with many variations and techniques.

WHO:
Bart Brejcha is a world-renowned instructor, known for his surfacing and product design training classes.
