FloworksThe North Alabama SolidWorks Users Group met tonight for our second evening meeting of the year. Tonight’s main agenda featured a COSMOS FloWorks demonstration by Dana Parrish of SolidWorks Corporation. Dana is the South Region Territory Technical Manager for COSMOS applications.  COSMOS FloWorks is one of those applications that you don’t seem to see demonstrated too often, so it was a welcome sight for all the users in attendance tonight.  Dana did a quick PowerPoint presentation outlining the capabilities of the software followed by a live demonstration of the software on a venturi tube.  The capabilities of the package were very impressive.  To me one of the most impressive features was the ability to directly integrate results from COSMOS FloWorks studies in COSMOSWorks studies.  I received lots of positive comments on the presentation after the meeting.  Many thanks to Dana for taking the time out of his busy schedule to attend our meeting tonight.

Two upcoming events were discussed at the meeting tonight which provide some real benefit to the users in our area.  The SWUGN Technical Summit in Nashville is coming up in less than two months and our next evening meeting in June will feature SolidWorks CEO John McEleney.

NASWUG members also saw a quick review of SolidWorks World 2007 which included the viewing of a highlight video of the event.  The sneak peek of SolidWorks 2008 which was revealed at the event was also highlighted.  The “Space Station” video by Mark Biasotti was a big hit with the crowd! Presentations and meeting notes will be posted soon to the NASWUG website.

Stay tuned….more to come!
