INCAT? helps organize, launch new Motor City Autodesk Inventor? User Group

INCAT� hosted the inaugural meeting of the Motor City Autodesk Inventor� User Group (MCAIUG) at its Novi, Mich., headquarters on Tuesday, June 24.

"This is something we considered for more than two years," said Dan Saperstein, INCAT GMB Sales Manager. "The decision to help organize the Motor City Autodesk Inventor User Group was made in April. It�s much needed, and we�re excited about its successful launch.

The initial meeting of the MCAIUG was a full house. Total attendance was 24 users representing 18 different companies. Attendees enjoyed pizza, soda pop and some networking before Dan Miles, INCAT Autodesk Solutions Architect, offered the group a look at the latest and some upcoming releases in the Inventor space. Miles has more than a decade of experience with Autodesk mechanical products and is the 2002 winner of the Autodesk Inventor Channel Excellence (ICE) Award, recognizing him as the top product knowledge and technical expert in the country.

"The MCAIUG will provide a regular forum for users of Autodesk solutions in the metro Detroit area to gather quarterly to share knowledge and information in a relaxed, member-driven atmosphere," Saperstein said.

He noted that while INCAT sponsored the launch of the group, members will develop and guide the group independently. Quarterly meetings will offer featured speakers, product demonstrations and open discussions.

The second meeting of the MCAIUG is set for Tuesday, August 12. INCAT headquarters in Novi will again be the site of the meeting. The agenda includes a focus on .idw drawings tips � a topic that MCAIUG members requested � and information on the new Inventor Series Professional software, focusing on the Piping module. In addition, the group will select two members to informally present their own Inventor "tips and tricks."

The decision to launch the MCAIUG was made after INCAT consulted with Autodesk Inc. and the Autodesk User Group International (AUGI). It is one of only three such groups in the Midwest and one of fewer than a dozen such groups nationwide.

INCAT anticipates that with the successful launch of the MCAIUG, the company will sponsor additional user groups, according to Saperstein. "Once the MCAIUG has developed a life of its own, I can see the possibility of duplicating the effort in Chicago, Ohio and south Florida," he said.
