12 May 2000
Boa Systems has won an award for the design of its Wildlife Counter used by the New Island South Conservation Trust to count Penguins in the Falkland Islands. On the 11 May over 50 Engineers from 38 companies across Britain gathered at Chesterton Golf Club in Oxfordshire, for a Solid Edge users day. The event was hosted by Cutting Edge Solutions Ltd and supported by Unigraphics Solutions Ltd the manufacturer of the 'Solid Edge' engineering design software. A number of industry leaders were on hand to demonstrate their products that support the Unigraphics' Solid Edge platform. The event also provides an informal opportunity for engineers to meet and exchange their experiences and views with each other. The day concluded with the presentations for the best examples of design completed using Solid Edge. The competition, which has proved a popular feature of these events, was open to over 300 organisations across Britain. The award for best product assembly was received by Jonathan Smith on behalf of Boa Systems. The awards for best rendered image and best individual part went to Felton Sheet Metal and Hygate Transmissions respectively.
