SolidWorks Users to Explore Power, Network, and Community at SolidWorks World North America

CONCORD, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Dec. 8, 2003— The three pillars of the SolidWorks experience - Power, Network, and Community - will be the focus of the SolidWorks World North America user conference when more than 650 customers come together Jan. 19-21, 2004, in Boston.

"We're making SolidWorks World the premier mechanical design conference," said John McEleney, CEO of SolidWorks. "This year's program will help customers harness the power of 3D design, the network of SolidWorks users worldwide, and the community of like-minded innovators, all to develop better products faster."

The conference, held at the Boston Copley Marriott Hotel, will feature success stories, the popular Model Mania contest, and previews of forthcoming products, including SolidWorks 2005.

The keynote address by a virtual product development team will illustrate the power of the SolidWorks network effect. The trio - Sam Ramada, founder of a new company called Mission3-D(TM); product designer Michelle Pillers, managing partner of Evolution Design Engineering Inc., and manufacturing agent Edwin Lun, co-founder of Pharos International - will describe how Mission3-D used SolidWorks(R) 3D mechanical design and collaboration software to create a one-of-a-kind device for three-dimensional photography. Working on opposite sides of the world, the partners designed, developed, and manufactured the product with minimal face-to-face meetings and travel expenses.

"From conception to production, we worked as a virtual team with SolidWorks," said Ramada, the inventor. "Our design engineer uses SolidWorks, our prototype maker uses SolidWorks, we use the SolidWorks eDrawings(TM) tool, and the manufacturers in China and Hong Kong use SolidWorks. The fact that SolidWorks was everywhere cut our time to market and made it much easier for everyone to understand what we were creating."

McEleney will host general sessions featuring Chris Garcia, vice president of research and development. The pair will reveal SolidWorks' vision for the future of design and engineering, for the company, and for emerging SolidWorks capabilities in drawing, drafting, analysis, communication, collaboration, large assembly modeling, and ease of use.

SolidWorks users, partners, and employees will moderate breakout sessions designed to maximize users' productivity and competitive advantage. Session topics include tips and tricks, analysis, routing, product data management best practices, sheet metal design, integrations, sketching and drawing, and more. A special track on COSMOS(TM) analysis products will feature presentations on structural and thermal analysis, fluid flow, and motion simulation. More than 60 software, hardware, and manufacturing partners will occupy the Partner Pavilion featuring product and service offerings that complement SolidWorks software.

Other conference highlights include certification testing for users interested in becoming Certified SolidWorks Professionals and the annual SolidWorks User Group Network (SWUGN) summit. For a complete agenda, session descriptions, and registration information, go to www.solidworks.com/swworld.
