Solidworks World 2018 – Day 1

It’s February, so that can only mean one thing, it’s Solidworks World 2018 time!  Are you attending? If so, drop by the Dassault Systèmes pavilion and say hello to the DraftSight team.  We would love to meet with you.

The calm before the storm. Not long after this, the crowds all arrived!

So, what’s lined up for DraftSight users at Solidworks World 2018?

Well today, at 1:30pm over in Room 153, we have a session called Using the DraftSight API to Create Add-ins for DraftSight. This will be a highly informative session and for those who can’t attend in person, it will be streamed live on the DraftSight Twitter and Facebook pages.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, over in Room 409A at 10:30am,  we have a session called What’s New in DraftSight 2018 which obviously deals with the new features in the latest version of DraftSight! Again, this will also be live streamed on Twitter and Facebook.

Finally on Wednesday at 2:45pm in Room 411, we will have a session called “DraftSight Essentials: DraftSight for the AutoCAD User”. This session is aimed at those who have switched or are thinking of switching from AutoCAD to DraftSight. Like the previous DraftSight sessions, this too will be streamed live on Twitter and Facebook.

It should be noted that all those times above are in PST, after all, we are in Los Angeles.

So, what else is going on that will be of interest to DraftSight users? Well Microsoft, Nvidia, HP, Wacom and many others are all here displaying the latest and greatest of their technology.

The first time I used CAD, it was on a DOS PC with an 8088 processor, 640K of memory and a Hercules Mono Graphics Card... That, well that was a long long time ago. I switched to DraftSight the day it was released and haven't looked back!
