SDS/2 2016 Seminars

Design Data knows that users don’t have time for a full week of Basic Training every time a new major SDS/2 release is made. That’s why we provide SDS/2 seminars around the country for our customers to attend and get themselves up to speed on new features.

Seminars are currently being scheduled for 2016. Check back soon for dates and locations.

Prerequisite
We require that you go through the “SDS/2 Detailing Basics & Step-By-Step Instructions” manual, “Assorted Tools for Working in SDS/2” manual, and “SDS/2 Connection Guide” before attending the course.

Materials Required
Design Data will supply each attendee with design drawings, course outlines, and other training information, all of which will be yours to keep. You will not need to bring anything else. At the end of the week you will also receive a CD-ROM containing your job and fabricator setup, 3D model, and details you will have created over the course of the week.
