SolidWorks World 2014

Last week Tacton Systems attended SolidWorks World in San Diego, California. SolidWorks World is a user conference for SolidWorks customers and consists of a variety of educational sessions showing features and ways of working in the software as well as customer cases and tips and tricks. The conference also has an exhibition area for SolidWorks’ partners to show off their products and solutions. This is where we were located.

We had a booth during the conference and were very happy to meet all the users and get a chance to show TactonWorks and get feedback from them. It is always very inspirational to be at SolidWorks. One can really feel the energy and joy from all the users and all the creativity flowing around. In all, it’s a great conference to attend!

Thank you to everyone who came by and visited us during the show!

Why is sales configuration complicated?

I got a very good question during a meeting with a potential customer the other day. He asked me “why is sales configuration complicated, isn’t just a bunch of dropdown menus that you need to keep track of?”

In essence that’s true, so why is it complicated? Continue Reading »

The model used in the demo is very simple and we are only using a fraction of the functionality available in TactonWorks but it is nevertheless a quick and decent introduction to design automation as well as TactonWorks Engineer.
