As a father of two girls, I am always impressed by their thinking and ability to tackle challenges. Providing tools for them in the engineering market is a great avenue to express that creativity.

Remote Hosting

Many companies are going to hosted environments. We are frequently asked for recommendations. “Is that even a possibility?” Yes, it is! I met some great people to help with this ever-growing challenge.

Breaking Old Designs With Fresh Ideas

I saw on stage today a few innovative women break an old design concept. With SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD and SOLIDWORKS Simulation, Trusst Lingerie made a very clever change to a decades old design. Believe it or not, it was a bra.




I’m still geeking out about it! I had to called my wife moments after.

It’s wonderful to see the gender barrier in our market challenged. With the innovations of SOLIDWORKS and their apps for kids, we can start building that creative engineering spark in our daughters, too.

Thousands Of SOLIDWORKS Certifications


More than 175,000 SOLIDWORKS certifications have been issued worldwide. I’ve personally taken many certifications, and they are no joke. For that many to be out there is truly impressive!
