3 Days of Technical Sessions, Workshops, Roundtables and Networking at Cincinnati’s Regional Event

(walk away with a voucher for a free Solid Edge Certification exam)

October 18-20, 2017


Developer day will be held at the Marriott North in the West Chester Ballroom IV with Siemens PLM Technical Account Manager, Greg Chasteen. The day begins with continental breakfast and check-in at 9:30a – sessions start at 10a. Lunch will be provided.


You will need to bring your laptop loaded with Solid Edge and Visual Studio (VB.NET), preferably 2013 or greater (Greg Chasteen will provide a temporary Solid Edge license file if you need it, but not Visual Studio). There will be one track on Developer Day covering the top request received for automation: batch processing programs. During the day’s session you will code:

  • Generic program framework to generate a list of specified file types based on folder input or text file input. Using this framework you will…
    • create a batch utility to find a particular custom property, get its value, write that value to another specified property, and then delete the original custom property.
    • create a batch utility to replace a background sheet.
    • create a batch utility to Reset the internal Solid Edge status property back to “available.”


There will be time at the end of the day for a roundtable to discuss any topics, issues, or questions that you might have run into while trying to write your customization on top of Solid Edge.

Join us at Topgolf’s driving range after the Thursday (10/19) sessions are over for 2 hours of hitting balls with dinner and drinks!


What is Topgolf?

Topgolf provides an upscale, fun way to hit balls at the driving range! Players hit microchipped golf balls at targets on an outfield. Just picture a larger-than-life-sized outdoor dartboard – but for golf. And for a little friendly rivalry, the high-tech balls instantly score each shot’s accuracy and distance.



Topgolf has evolved to become a best-in-class entertainment venue, complete with a food and drink menu that would put any sports bar to shame. With golf pros strolling the tee line offering tips and climate-controlled hitting bays, Topgolf is flat-out fun at any age, skill level or time of year.

Introducing Solid Edge University – Cincinnati


Solid Edge University is moving to a new format this year. Instead of one main event, Siemens PLM and their partners are putting on regional events in order to reach more users and to make the event more personal.


Ally PLM Solutions is teaming up with the Siemens PLM Solid Edge group to deliver an event that spans three days. The first day will be led by Siemens PLM and be a Developer Day. The second day will be technical sessions and follow the new Solid Edge University regional format (+ an awesome networking event). The third day we’ll provide a hands-on session while Siemens PLM hosts a roundtable.

Join us for a great Solid Edge University where you will…

  • learn about new functionality in Solid Edge ST10.
  • increase your Solid Edge product knowledge and improve your personal productivity.
  • discover new ways to approach your toughest engineering challenges.
  • attend technical sessions delivered by subject matter experts.
  • network with your peers and Solid Edge developers.
  • receive a voucher to take the Solid Edge certification exam free of charge.
