I am a big believer in being familiar with your resources. I am also a big believer in the power of community. If only, you ask, there was a place where SOLIDWORKS users could, when a particular need arose, let’s say, post questions to a group of peers, who in turn, would reply, with the simple goal of unselfishly increasing the skills and abilities of all SOLIDWORKS users. Sam, you ask, could there possibly be such a wondrous place?
I’m glad you asked.
I recently had a chance to hear Greg Jankowski speak at a recent User Group meeting. (You are attending your friendly local SOLIDWORKS User Group, aren’t you?) Greg is the Director of Community and Content Strategy and spoke of the new, refurbished User Forums. He was justifiably excited about the recent improvements to the website and he, like I, hope it simplifies and increases user participation.
What? You haven’t seen the new User Forums? Well, thanks to Greg, here’s some links that should get you started.
I encourage everyone to spend a little time exploring the User Forums. Even if you don’t participate, I guarantee you will learn something new with every visit. We even have a shortcut and search tool available at our own Graphics Systems website. As a SOLIDWORKS user you are part of one of the world’s largest user communities. Why not avail yourself of the resources at hand?
