SLUG - Solidworks Louisville User Group Meeting
  October 19th, 2011

Our third meeting for 2011 is coming up on October 19th, Wednesday 6:30 - 8:30 pm at University of Louisville.

Modeling Contest?!? PRIZES!?!


You got that right...we are having a modeling contest and giving out prizes....Goooood Ones.


It's time to show your Solidworks Chops....

We've been talking about this for a while and now we are going to do it.  We are going to have a 'Modeling Contest' during our next meeting.  The University of Louisville has graciously offered us their computer Lab to help us host it.  3D Vision, Rapid Sheet Metal and Solid Professor have all kicked in some AWESOME prizes to help make it tasty.

NOTE:  This meeting will be on WEDNESDAY night October 19th at 6:30pm – 8:30pm.

The way this is going to work is we will give the contestants design specifications.  This will be a model that is simple enough for completion in the meeting time.  Each individual contestant will then create a model.  Our panel of judges with then inspect each model based on time to completion and part weight.

The winners will be announced next meeting in December.  The prizes are valued at over $300 – so you know we got some real good stuff…but I can throw in some Solidworks mints if you want.

At the next meeting, the top three winners will present their design and go over how they did it.

Of course, we'll have some food and networking!


Do me a favor...forward this on to your friends in the Louisville area.  Let's get the word out and use this to grow our group.  Throw it on Facebook and tweedle it to your tweeties.  Tell your momma - I know she can throw down on some fillets...what oh you mean filets....well whatever.

So c'mon out and show us your Solidworks may get you some recognition and a great prize.

Please RSVP to so that we can get an accurate count for food purposes.
