MINNEAPOLIS - July 16, 2013 - PRLog -- Alignex, the Midwest leader in manufacturing innovation, is pleased to announce Art To Part & Design Automation Happy Hour event, taking place at Old Capitol Grill in Golden, CO,  on August 1, 2013. Alignex Technical Experts will show how to take an idea from napkin sketch, or 2D sketch, to a full feature 3D model with SolidWorks 3D CAD tools. They will show how these tools can then be used to automate your design process. Attendees are encouraged to bring their design, engineering, and manufacturing questions.

Alignex has taken some of the most asked about topics in design automation and part design, brought them together, streamlined them, and created a live two hour "Happy Hour" seminar. The following design and manufacturing topics will be covered:

Session 1: Art To Part –
2D sketch to a full feature 3D model.
Simulation for EVERY Designer.
Easy File Translations: Bring in virtually any file type with just the click of the mouse.
Automatic Costing Tool: Quickly generate estimates and part manufacturing costs.
Easily create flat patterns from complex sheet metal shapes.

Session 2: Design Automation –
Capture the parameters you want to control
Create a good looking and intelligent user interface to specify your products
Build rules that link the form inputs to the captured parameters that control your designs

“The Art To Part & Design Automation Happy Hour event gives designers, engineers and manufacturers a way to experience the advantages of design automation and 3D part manufacturing.” says Steve Keinath, President of Alignex.
