I am thinking of submitting a proposal for a presentation focused on the craziest techniques showcased in the Weekly Power-User Challenges this year.
There is a lot of fantastic stuff in there. The presentation will go beyond the simple workflow and will also present:
- "The why" - what goal do we try to accomplish?
- "The challenge" - why is that difficult when using standard tools and/or techniques?
- "The new original workflow" - presenting the best solutions
- "The Pros and Cons" - of each solution presented
- Define "Enhancement Requests" for the future functionality of SOLIDWORKS
Do you think such a topic would be of interest to the audience? If yes, why? If no, why?
Please suggest a title for this presentation. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
I would also like to ask now the WPUC winners if they would agree to having their name mentioned at SWW. I am talking about these power-users:
