SOLIDWORKS World 2015 is calling YOU.. Join the Wagon!!

 

While we’re still less then 7 months away months from SOLIDWORKS World 2015 in Phoenix , things are already starting to happen. Earlier this week DS SOLIDWORKS Corporation announced its Call for Presentations for SOLIDWORKS World 2015. SOLIDWORKS World brings together 6000 users, resellers, and partners, from around the world,  that are passionate about design using SOLIDWORKS.

SOLIDWORKS World 2015 will be held  at the Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, Arizona, February 8-11, 2015

While SolidWorks World always has lots of great presentations and guest speakers, the real value of the event for most customers comes from the technical breakout sessions that take place over three days, most of which are lead by regular SolidWorks customers. These presenters come from around the world, and lead sessions on topics in which they have considerable experience. In return, we let them into the event for free. You can see some of the presentations from SOLIDWORKS World 2014 on SOLIDWORKS World proceedings website.

Any SolidWorks customer 21 or older can submit a proposal to present at the event. If you have any interesting thing to share,  just go ahead and submit the presentation. Later this summer, SolidWorks World selection committee will get together and pick the ones that they think will be the most valuable, and send out invitations.  SolidWorks World Team encourage both long-time presenters and new applicants alike to submit.

We are looking for presentations that cover the following categories/topics:

  • Customer Success and Integrated Solutions
  • Data Management and Administration
  • Design Automation
  • Design Communication
  • Design Simulation
  • Electrical
  • Modeling Essentials
  • Productivity Tools
  • SOLIDWORKS in Education

If you want to find out more, visit the submission site and get the details. With any luck, we’ll see you at the Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, Arizona, February 8-11, 2015.

 

You never know if you’re presenting at next SolidWorks World.

Understand the environmental impact of your product with SolidWorks Sustainability!!

Too often, manufacturers operate according to a short-term view. while focusing on the present is important for achieving success in the near term, a total fixation on the marketplace as it is today—rather than on making decisions and investments that take into account anticipated changes—can prove to be extremely shortsighted and ultimately detrimental to your company’s future success. without including a long-term view as part of your business strategy, you may find your organization unmotivated and unable to respond to competitive pressures, or incapable of capitalizing on new green markets and business expansion opportunities.

Consider the breakthrough changes that have occurred over the last few decades, including the:

• Introduction of green products
• Rising cost of traditional energy sources
• Increasing reliance on renewable energy sources
• Continuing depletion of natural resources
• Substantial growth in municipal recycling programs
• Rise in consumer-driven “eco-labeling” programs
• Adoption of carbon legislation by governments worldwide
• Launching of major sustainability initiatives by Fortune® 100 companies such as Ge, ibM, and wal-Mart

This reflects how critical sustainability will become to your company for achieving and maintaining a competitive edge.

SolidWorks Sustainability Design Software Helps in Understanding Environmental Impacts

Solidworks Sustainability allows designers and engineers to measure the environmental impact of the products they design in Solidworks CAD software. Because Solidworks Sustainability is fully integrated inside the Solidworks software design environment, it provides real-time feedback on environmental impacts in four key areas:

• Carbon Footprint
• Total energy Consumed
• Effect on Water 
• Effect on Air

This sustainability add-in feature allows products to be designed more sustainable from the start. The SolidWorks 2012 product launch includes an improved user interface with more options available to advanced users, and easy access to the latest material additions.

Like all SolidWorks products, SolidWorks Sustainability makes a complex process easy to understand and use. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) becomes another fast, yet critical step in product development, giving you the information you need to make environmentally friendly engineering decisions. Sustainable design is now SolidWorks simple!

As a Certified Sustainable Design Associate (CSDA), you will stand out from the crowd in today’s competitive job market by demonstrating an understanding of the principles of environmental assessment and sustainable design. Employers can be confident that an individual with this certification understands the principles of environmental assessment and sustainable design.

Learning the Green Design by SolidWorks Certification !!

The ideas of sustainability and sustainable design are a growing part of today’s product design conversations. Sustainable design, like quality, time to market, and cost, will soon dictate how engineers approach almost every product they develop. Choosing products based on their carbon footprint will be equally as important as design validation. To stay ahead of the curve, you and your company need to understand sustainable design and how to implement it now.

Conduct screening-level life cycle assessment (LCA) on parts or assemblies directly within the design window. Search for comparable materials and see in real-time how they affect environmental impact. Create detailed reports that explain a design’s sustainability.

These are just some of the functional benefits that SolidWorks Sustainability brings to sustainable design. You will have one integrated system that lets you design for the environment while creating great products and still meeting deadlines.

And to add more, SolidWorks Certification team has recently launched a new certification exam named Certified Sustainable Design Associate  (CSDA)
