Presentation Topics

Secrets of the Universe Revealed, using SolidWorks

This fascinating presentation involving unheard-of uses for SolidWorks will cover a number of topics including:


  • Looking at the earth, moon and stars with SolidWorks
  • Why are circles round?
  • Using SolidWorks to understand geometry with no mathematics
  • What are fractals? In art and engineering
  • Automotive topics like: designing race car suspension using sketch blocks and how to design fuel efficient engines

The presentation will span two hours with a break in between. During the break, Paul will poll the audience and adjust the topics for the second session according to the audience feedback!

Paul Parise has been using SolidWorks since 1998, to design high technology products and equipment for lasers, optics, electronics and medical fields.
