Application Engineer

Sam has been working at DP Technology since May of 2017. He is originally from Ohio, but he moved to California in 2015. In 2014, he graduated from Case Western Reserve University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He enjoys any form of physical activity, especially basketball, hiking, yoga, and lifting weights.

In this tip video we will demonstrate how to use solid propagation and grouping properties to ease feature Creation. These techniques will provide easier and more intuitive sub-element selection, which can be used to create or modify various features.
