If you’re like many users, you’ve heard the terms DimXpert and MBD but don’t really know exactly what they do or why you should care.

In this session, Brad will show how to get started using DimXpert to speed up things you’re already doing to dimension parts and drawings.

You’ll see how these techniques extend to Model Based Definition (MBD) as a way of moving toward  drawingless manufacturing.

Finally, Brad will introduce a new way to try out and learn new software with the SOLIDWORKS Online Product Trial.  Everyone in attendance will be issued a free 7 day trial of SOLIDWORKS Premium and MBD that runs completely in a web browser with no software to install.

Dinner will be provided and door prizes will be given away at the conclusion of the event.
