Powering Innovation: SurePro launches SOLIDWORKS 2017 in Manila

“Power” and “Innovation” were the main messages conveyed at the recently concluded SOLIDWORKS 2017 Launch Innovation Day held last 7 October 2016 at Palacio De Maynila, Manila.  SurePro’s Innovation Day is part of the global launch of SOLIDWORKS 2017, the latest version of the software, which incorporates the latest features and enhancements harnessed from feedbacks and suggestions from some three million global users.

Key Note Address

“The Power You Need to Drive Innovation” is this year’s main theme and Mr. Chevy Kok, Dassault Systèmes, Territory Sales Manager for Asean-Central region highlighted what this power and innovation was all about. Mr. Kok in his key note address talked about how SOLIDWORKS creates powerful, reliable, and easy to use design technology, which impacts our daily lives. In his presentation, Mr. Kok presented the latest invention from a company called MYOMO, which stands for MY Own MOvement, developed an assistive technology device enabling patients suffering from strokes, spinal cord injuries, and progressive illnesses like ALS, to regain their movement.  MYOMO’s genius is in its design using SOLIDWORKS, as it allows for 1) user initiated movement; and 2) amplification of brain signals to drive the motors of the device.  The design concept can be compared to the power steering in your car.

Bridge Distribution Tech Forum: The Best Needs The Best
Powerful software like SOLIDWORKS (3D design), SolidCAM (CAM tool) or ESI-ProCAST (virtual casting simulation) require powerful hardware and equipment.  Making considerations for your hardware and software environment, the adage, as Ms. Louise Crisostomo, Dell Philippine’s business development manager-services, points out “You get what you pay for!” couldn’t be more apt.

How People Learn to Become Resilient
Norman Garmezy, a developmental psychologist and clinician at the University of Minnesota, met thousands of children in his four decades of research. But one boy in particular stuck with him. He was nine years old, with an alcoholic mother and an absent father. Each day, he would arrive at school with the exact same sandwich: two slices of bread with nothing in between. At home, there was no other food available, and no one to make any. Even so, Garmezy would later recall, the boy wanted to make sure that “no one would feel pity for him and no one would know the ineptitude of his mother.” Each day, without fail, he would walk in with a smile on his face and a “bread sandwich” tucked into his bag.

The boy with the bread sandwich was part of a special group of children. He belonged to a cohort of kids—the first of many—whom Garmezy would go on to identify as succeeding, even excelling, despite incredibly difficult circumstances. These were the children who exhibited a trait Garmezy would later identify as “resilience.”
