For this meeting we require help from you! Bring your problematic SOLIDWORKS design files to the meeting and let the experts help you.

nTopology Element:

nTopology makes generative 3D-design software for advanced manufacturing, including metal 3D-printing. Element, allows for highly complex geometric structures to be algorithmically designed, simulated, and tuned for demanding industrial applications. On the right project, Element can save hundreds of design hours and can generate geometries that were previously impossible.

nTopology will demonstrate the software. Bring an STL or SOLIDWORKS file if you would like to see Element work on one of your designs.


Xometry has created a proprietary software platform to offer on demand manufacturing to a diverse customer base, from startups to Fortune 500 companies. The free Xometry Add-In for SOLIDWORKS ( allows designers and engineers to get an immediate price, lead times, and manufacturability feedback for your CAD model.

Ben Warner, Project Engineer at Xometry, will present an overview of the most common additive (3D printing) and subtractive custom manufacturing technologies, how they are used, and some best practices on when to use them for your project.

Ask the Experts, 2017 Edition!

An interactive presentation featuring a panel of SOLIDWORKS experts - bring your challenging designs, slow-to-rebuild parts, your worst-case-scenarios, your off-the-wall modeling questions, and get the help you need to be more productive with SOLIDWORKS.

We'll have plenty of pizza, beverages, and giveaways!

This meeting is sponsored by nTopology (, Xometry (, Rapid Sheet Metal (, and of course - the SOLIDWORKS User Group Network (
