MakeTime Continues to Forge Alliances, Hosts Central Kentucky SolidWorks User GroupKAM
Online CNC sourcing pioneer MakeTime has formed many valuable alliances in the three years since its founding. From the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation to Autodesk and Foundry Group, the Lexington-based startup has amassed an impressive roster of early investors. Still, the company maintains its most valuable alliances are the companies, design firms and everyday individuals looking to simplify and speed the procurement of CNC machined parts. To that end, MakeTime just announced they’re hosting the Central Kentucky SolidWorks User Group (CKSUG) meeting next Wednesday, May 3, 2017 from 5:45pm to 8pm at their headquarters in Lexington, Ky.
The SolidWorks User Group Network is an international coalition of SolidWorks users seeking to better their understanding of how to use SolidWorks. As the most popular professional-level 3D CAD software in the market1, SolidWorks is both a robust and complex program. To assist users in mastering it, the CKSUG holds meetings once a quarter, providing makers, manufacturers, engineers and designers with direct access to expert SolidWorks users and engineers. This quarter’s meeting at MakeTime will focus on managing large assemblies in SolidWorks and will also include a meal and door prizes.
“We’re really looking forward to hosting the Central Kentucky SolidWorks User Group,” says Justin Hosley of MakeTime. “Besides the fact that SolidWorks is one of our industry’s top CAD programs, getting to meet the engineers behind some of our state’s best designs is very exciting. Everything we do at MakeTime is geared toward simplifying and speeding procurement for the people making parts. These events provide us with precious insight into how we can keep improving our offerings to our customers.”
The meeting is sponsored by a number of companies, including SolidWorks, 3DVision Technologies, DriveWorks, Acer Technologies, Fisher Unitech and MakeTime. SolidWorks users interested in attending the event can RSVP here. MakeTime headquarters are located in downtown Lexington, Ky at 446 E. High Street.
