"I wanted to thank you for the NX Portland User Group, it was an amazing and beneficial experience for me. I participated in the user-group on behalf of Global Formula Racing here at Oregon State University, I'm a graduation senior in Industrial Engineering here at OSU.

Here at GFR we are preparing to switch to Siemens NX from CATIA V5; and beginning of 2017 both e-car and c-car models will be designed using Siemens NX (design process is a collaborative teamwork between our US side at OSU and German side at DHBW).

As part of my senior design project I'm working on CATIA V5 to NX10 preparation, documentation, and tutorials. So far we've had identified the possible bottle-necks as well as bench marking similar industries who have switched to Siemens NX. After attending the user-group I highly recommended your company to my adviser and teammates for future support of NX PLM for Global Formula Racing. I hope that Siemens NX and support of organizations like Applied CAx and Sherpa help GFR to continue wining competitions year after years."
