What Combines Mills, Museums & Mummies?

Javelin’s SolidWorks 2013 Launch Events, of course!

From costing enhancements and conics to nested folders and the oh-so-powerful intersect feature, SolidWorks 2013 prompted Javelin’s own SolidWorks guru Alin Vargatu to deem this “the most impressive SolidWorks release ever“. To celebrate, Javelin decided to take your favourite engineering software on the road and show over 250 attendees exactly what the new release can do:

With Applications Engineers (and, more importantly, Certified SolidWorks Experts) Alex Arevalo and Jake Middleton at the helm of the presentation, SolidWorks users got the chance to dive into all the enhancements that the 2013 release has to offer. Over the course of 5 hours, attendees got to view in-depth software demonstrations, visit Javelin product tables, network with our wonderful sponsors, record a video testimonial, enjoy a delicious lunch and play a little vendor bingo (and, maybe sneak a peek at the ROM’s dinosaur exhibit like I did).

The Cambridge Mill’s Falls Room provided a gorgeous view of the Grand River and the perfect backdrop for an intimate afternoon of demos and networking; while in Ottawa, the Museum of Nature’s Barrick Salon welcomed SolidWorks users to experience the wonders of SWX 2013 on their big screen. Finally, in Toronto, the Royal Ontario Museum’s Bronfman Hall held the excitement of over 130 attendees as they interacted with Javelin staff and sponsors – Torontonians’ competitive spirit was championed as attendees actively pursued filling out their bingo cards for a chance to win an Apple TV! Toronto’s launch was ecstatic to welcome Design Product News – you can watch Alex’s thoughts on SolidWorks 2013 and Ted’s update on what’s new at Javelin!

A huge thank you to our awesome sponsors (OneCAD Solutions, In-House Solutions and Applied Precision) – without your help, these events wouldn’t be possible. Thanks also goes out to the Javelin staff that helped pull everything together, Alex & Jake for running such a great presentation, and of course, our attendees! Because of you, Javelin gets to do what we do best – share our passion for innovation and provide the tools to help engineers bring their ideas to life.

Congratulations are in order for our launch events draw winners

Jeffrey Jackson (Cambridge), Terry Young (Ottawa) and Richard Laflamme (Toronto) were the winners of the survey draw! These lucky fellows walked home with a Javelin backpack full of swag & a free training voucher.

Gary Strobel (Cambridge) and Phillip Johnson (Ottawa) were the winners of the vendor bingo draw, getting to bring home the coveted Apple TV.
