Happy Summer! We hope you are enjoying the sunshine and warm weather.

As you enjoy these summer months, we encourage you to check out our summer event offerings like our Engineering Success User Series: FEA Summit next week and our SOLIDWORKS Composer Hands-On Test Drive.

We still have many training offerings too. Our goal is to provide you with plenty of opportunities in the summer to improve your skills and network with other engineers.

In light of that, we now offer a daily video on our YouTube Channel called Singularity of the Day! Check it out here!

Rolling in the sunshine.
