12.14.07 - Bart Brejcha speaks at the
Wisconsin Pro/E user conference. His talk set the foundation of his white
paper to the PTC international conference. His talk suggested alternate
modeling techniques for industrial designers who are familiar with direct
modeling in Alias Studio. By using control vertices in Wildfire 4.0 surfacing
industrial designers can prove form even faster with new WF4.0 tools and
Engineers can capture form faster as well. Look for his white paper to
be published January 7th 2008
