Northeast Solidworks User Conference

Interpro Models

Planned sessions will include Sheet Metal, Plastics Module, Costing Module, Electrial, Drawings, Simulation, Motion, Plastics design, 3DVia Composer, Toolbox, Using Planes, and bunch of other topics (plus great food!). SolidWorks users from Pennsylvania to Maine will be taking part in the annual Northeast Solidworks User Conference on September 21 in Westford, Massachusetts. Last year the conference was a big success, with almost 300 SolidWorks users attending.
