Build Your Skills Online – Learn Something New in One Hour While Watching CODE V, LightTools, LucidShape Tech Talks

There’s no doubt that this has been an unusual and challenging year. Trade shows, conferences, and events were postponed or converted to an online format, we learned to use new video conferencing platforms, and telecommuting became the norm for every day. What has not changed is that we have continued to be there for our customers and provide ready access to resources and training.

We just announced our upcoming tech talks for January through March, now covering European time zones. Upcoming topics include:

  • Introduction to Thermal Analysis in CODE V
  • Ray Deviation Correction for Cover Lenses in LucidShape
  • LightTools 9.1 New Features
  • And more

Looking back at this year, we offered over 30 online tech talks for all our products. They are now available on-demand on our Customer Support Portal. Check out a few of the topics to pick up some useful techniques and learn about the most powerful features for your workflow:
