Designers, Makers, Engineers, Parents and Kids, they were all at the Maker Faire 2017 NYC this weekend! Kids of all ages got to try out SOLIDWORKS Apps For Kids,Through workshops, coloring activities, and hands-on practice, kids quickly designed their models using Shape It, Style It, Print It software applications and collected 3D Printed charms and assembled 2D printed cubes. Thank you FIRST Robotics teams, FRC, FTC, for stopping by to say hello and showing us your robots and SOLIDWORKS models.
Young designers use SOLIDWORKS to innovate and invent. The Technical Innovation and Invention Olympics is a countrywide contest for high school students in Poland. Thanks to the competition, future engineers can present their knowledge, skills, and also win an entry into a chosen University.
The SOLIDWORKS Apps for Kids team is busy. Time to visit Maker Faires and summer camps. It’s also time to explore the new App – “Print It“. I love the Print It app! You can print to a 2D printer and to a 3D printer. In 2D, you can print your Shape It model with “cube print” providing the Front, Top, Right, Back, Bottom, Left views of your shape. Cut out the shape. Fold. Tape/Glue. With access to a 3D Printer, you can save an STL file and 3D print your shape.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
