With SOLIDWORKS World 2018 just days away, the excitement is building at GSC! Twenty-two GSC staff members will make the journey to Los Angeles to network with you, our customers, and grow our skills to further our ability to fuel your success.

Not to mention, SOLIDWORKS World is the place to hear about the future of SOLIDWORKS, learn the latest information on the next release, and find out about new products.
