Gaming the System 2:  Tips & Tricks Exploring the “Ghost in the Machine”

Ed Eaton – Sr. Industrial Designer – DiMonte Group Inc.


This is Ed’s SolidWorks World 2015 presentation.

The “Ghost in the Machine” can either haunt you or be your savior, depending on how well you know it. This session pulls back the curtain on how SOLIDWORKS operates


at its root level to reveal different ways to get around avoidable roadblocks and readily get SOLIDWORKS to do what you need to do.


Attendees will learn tricky SOLIDWORKS tips and tricks. By learning how SOLIDWORKS works at its root level, attendees will understand how to adjust their workflows


and craft their own workarounds for day-to-day challenges.


We will have the usual pizza and soft drinks for refreshments, along with a door prize drawing (if we have prizes to give away).


The meeting should adjourn around 8:30pm.


No RSVP necessary.

We will base the headcount on the average from previous meetings.


Looking forward to seeing the familiar faces along with any new members.


Solidly Yours,

Denny Bahl

CSUG President
