PRESENTERS:             Hardi Meybaum - Hardi’s background is a somewhat unique combination of engineering, process automation and IT. After graduating from the Tallinn University of Technology with a Masters in Production Development (Mechanical Engineering), Hardi worked as a Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), for Saku Metall where he also implemented Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software and ERP systems, before eventually becoming CIO of the company. After Saku, Hardi spent two years at Columbus IT implementing ERP systems before starting his first company, Futeq, to help manufacturers get products to market faster. While running Futeq Hardi saw the opportunity to help use open, web-based systems to accelerate the design process, and started GrabCAD to help that movement.


                                    Rick Lando - Rick is a Sales Manager for 3Dconnexion. Rick has been with 3Dconnexion for over 11 years working with end users, reseller partners and certainly SolidWorks User Groups! 3Dconnexion manufactures the popular series of devices known as 3D Mice which works in conjunction with a regular mouse.  This 2-handed workflow provides an intuitive, balanced and cooperative work style that results in increased productivity, improvements in creativity and enhanced comfort.

Rick asks that you spend a minute trying one!


                                    Alex Worsford – Alex is an AE for MCAD. He spent time as a Blue Whale wrangler, Ostrich masseuse and shallow sea diver before discovering his true passion: SOLIDWORKS. Since then, he has done nothing but hone his skills. As of today, he is one of three certified SOLIDWORKS Ninjas.
