 SolidWorks Corporation, a supplier of 3D CAD technology, is partnering with the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association Foundation (FMAF) to support summer manufacturing camps and student scholarships that promote careers in manufacturing. The company will donate 150 day-limited licenses of its Student Design Kit CAD software to 750 students and teachers involved in 26 summer manufacturing camps taking place this summer. Designed for ease of use, the Windows-based software is said to enable students to create "real-life" 3D designs that they can easily manipulate. The kit includes an interactive tutorial as well as online help menus and references. In addition, the company will provide the fully licensed version of its software to every FMAF student scholarship winner and contribute money to help underwrite a portion of as many as 32 scholarships. The FMAF scholarships are awarded annually to college- or trade school-bound high school seniors who seek manufacturing careers.
