Dutch Pro/ENGINEER Users Conference 1998

The 1998 Dutch Pro/ENGINEER Users Conference was held nov. 26th at the University in Eindhoven. A new location which was very well received. There were less visitors compared to previous year: 140 paying attendees compared to 160 in 1997 and 136 in 1996.

In the morning three Pro/AWARD Nominee presentations took place. These presentations were selected by PTC Netherlands, the User Group and last year winner out of 30 entries:
  • Signaal; J.Diever; MiRADOR
All had 20 minutes to present their work. The conference attendees could choose a winner, by filling in a form. The winner was announced at the end of the day.

Before these presentations (which were very well received) PTC held a presentation on the future plans of PTC.

After the lunch the conference got a more informal character with three times parallel workshops in three different conference rooms resulting in an increased mobility. The workshops were:

During the breaks in between the workshops people had the opportunity to attend to the various vendor presentations:

Furthermore they could take a look at some High Mountain Press material and off course meet many other Pro/E Users and the PTC Representatives.

After the workshops everyone went to the main conference room to prepare for the announcement of the Pro/AWARD winner:

Now it was time to announce the 1998 Dutch Pro/AWARD Winner chosen by the conference attendees themselves ... and the winner is:

Groenewegen Wegtransportmiddelen
with their trailer.

They explained how they use Pro/ENGINEER to automatically build a complete set of drawings for a truck trailer (800 parts) all based on one generic assembly.

Layouts, Pro/PROGRAM, Interchange assemblies and Simplified reps were the keywords here.

They received 1000 guilders and the Dutch Pro/AWARD from PTC.

Congratulations!

The day ended with an informal drink.
