On April 13th, over 70 individuals from the Northeast Ohio SolidWorks User Group (NEOSWUG) visited WARDJet for their chapter meeting. Members of the NEOSWUG organization are professionals working with the CAM software SolidWorks, which is popular in industries such as engineering and manufacturing. Students from local high schools and universities were also in attendance. WARDJet was a natural fit to host the meeting, since the waterjet company is heavily involved in both engineering and manufacturing, hires mostly local talent, and uses the SolidWorks software to design equipment.
Attendees of the after-work event were greeted with a dinner networking reception. Presentations by WARDJet Director of Sales & Marketing Jason Stuffel and Director of Engineering Adam Carder kicked off the formal meeting. Stuffel introduced WARDJet and described waterjet cutting technology to the audience using multimedia elements. Carder took the helm shortly after, and launched into a presentation that outlined how WARDJet utilizes SolidWorks and its products to streamline engineering and production. After these initial presentations, attendees were treated to a tour of WARDJet’s production floor.
At the conclusion of the WARDJet tour, guests returned to the lecture hall for presentations by SolidWorks employees. The event concluded with giveaways, including SolidWorks garb and waterjet-cut logo artwork.
The evening was lots of fun, and attendees walked away with a greater appreciation for the SolidWorks community and a deeper knowledge of waterjet cutting technology!
