I am looking forward to the workshop. It will be time well spent to see how the different software from PTC can help us in our robot design process. If you need directions or you have any questions, please feel free to email or pm me.

Any chance that the workshops will be recorded and available online?


We will probably try to videotape the workshop and post them afterwards. I’ll let everyone know when I figure out the details.

Hi Oris,

I checked with PTC. They do not have resources in Michigan to videotape this. We can try to videotape it but the quality and resolution will not be high enough for anyone to follow along as a training video. It may be good enough to give somebody an idea the capability of the different software. If somebody from your team is available, it is best to attend the workshop so they can actually try it out and ask questions.


P.S. It will be great if you can come so I can meet you and personally thank you for the VBA code you provided.
