Tweet Want a way to view interdependencies between features and parts in SolidWorks? Well, SolidMap claims to be able to do just that, including showing circular references! We’ll just have to see about that, won’t we? I have the software, now I’m going to take it for a spin around the block a time or [...]

Tweet Now, I realize that this blog is supposed to be about SolidWorks and its associated hardware and software, but I feel the need to vent a little bit. I’ve recently begun receiving emails from someone who shall remain anonymous. These emails are, essentially, bulk emails as I’ve been added to this person’s ‘press release’ [...]
Tweet You have to try this! Go to www.solidworks.com/paperpilot. Design your own paper airplane and see how well it flies. Sure, you’re productivity will go down but, hey, it’s Friday!!
Tweet For those of you who don’t read Matt Lombard’s blog (which is really a HUGE mistake on your part), you should, at the very least, check out his latest post regarding Vista and SolidWorks. Click here to get to it.

Tweet Ahh, Tuesday… The day started off with a 20 oz mocha. No breakfast as I had to attend a vendor partner meeting. I was introduced to the attendees so that, when I hit them up for demos, they’d know who I was. It worked out well later in the day…more about that a few [...]
Tweet Ok, first things first…We have a winner! Two actually. Gerald Davis caught me outside my hotel this morning and laid claim to the SpaceNavigator and Jeff Arthur found me at 4pm to take the SpaceNavigator. Congratulations to both of you and I hope you enjoy your new toys! The morning started off with a [...]
Tweet Ok, for those of you who took the survey and are now wondering how to find me, I’m going to give you my schedule for tomorrow. Remember, you’ll need to have the coupon with you to win either the SpaceExplorer or the SpaceNavigator. Breakfast at 7, followed by the general session. Time allowing, I’ll [...]
