“Everybody’s got a dream and it’s good to dream the impossible. With the world’s best engineers working on your dream, you just might transform the impossible into the possible.”
Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Group founder and philanthropist, was a special guest speaker here at SolidWorks World 2009, the largest annual 3D CAD event on the planet. More than 4,000 SolidWorks customers, partners, resellers, and employees attended.
In addition to those poignant comments, this year’s event presented another prime opportunity for designers and engineers to network, learn, and find inspiration with colleagues from around the globe.
“Since I started using SolidWorks in 2004, my VAR The SolidExperts insisted I should go to SolidWorks World,” said Sara Cheney, director of engineering at Vault Structures Inc. in Fort Myers, Fla. “After finally attending this week, I regret not coming from year one and discovering all these new ways to improve productivity at my company.”
