>> Michael PEREZ has over 10 years of experience at Dassault Systemes and its 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, which makes him an expert of it. He first worked for 8 years in CATIA Brand as a QA Manager and was in charge of the quality of CATIA Apps on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.

Then, 3 years ago, he joined the SOLIDWORKS Product Management team and is now, as a Senior Product Manager, responsible for the SOLIDWORKS 3DEXPERIENCE portfolio, 3DEXPERIENCE Social Collaboration Services for SOLIDWORKS users and SOLIDWORKS Product Designer brand new product. He’s also deeply involved in the product management activities of one of the newest offerings, SOLIDWORKS xDesign.

Michael will show the capabilities of this browser-based design tool, answer your questions, and maybe even show you how you can get started using it.

>> Foldstar Inc. is a New Jersey start-up that has introduced for the first time in the 3D design industry - software for designing folded tessellations. Folded tessellations are complex patterns generated easily by the Foldstar algorithm that permit low-cost manufacturing of complex structures from flat materials using the simple act of folding. These patterns can be created by the designer using incredibly simple inputs and intuitive methods found in the Foldstar software and its advanced user interface (UI). The company also offers machine design IP to manufacture the folded product and design services as required. The new software and services allow for the creation of first of its kind complex and beautiful folding patterns for low-cost manufacturing products in industries such as:

> Packaging

> Automotive

> Architecture

> Mechanical Design

>> Casey Colligan is a Senior Support Engineer for CADimensions, based out of Albany. He has been working at CADimensions for over 2 years now performing SOLIDWORKS training, and providing technical support.

Casey will be sharing a brief overview of the different packages of SOLIDWORKS Simulation. Covering what’s different with each package and what functionality each contains, followed by a demonstration showing how to setup a linear static study for both SimXpress and Simulation Standard.
