As one of the CAD industries larger events SolidWorks World (SWW) continues to be an event that sets a benchmark for others when it comes to community gatherings. The SolidWorks ecosystem is one that many have marvelled at over the past 20 or so years and this year’s SWW event reflected a robust and enthusiastic end-user community.
SolidWorks World 2013, Orlando – bigger and better? Lets discuss…
Having attended SolidWorks World on and off for many years (at least 9 over the past 15 years if I remember correctly) it’s interesting to reflect on a change in the nature of the event. The event, to me anyway, was a tad less vibrant than former years; the SolidWorks execs and staff were very welcoming and the customers engaging, but somehow the unique passion that was the hallmark of the original team (who’ve now all but departed from the organisation) seems to be diminishing.
