Sharpen your PYTHA skills at dedicated workshops

Whether you’re a long-time user or a PYTHA-newbie, the depth and capacity of this incredible software means there is always something new to learn. With the German PYTHA developers joining us at our upcoming Convention, we’re cashing in on the knowledge we’ll have in the country and have organised a series of workshops to help you continue to get the ‘most bang for your buck’ with PYTHA 3D CAD. Topics will be based on our three ‘PYTHA pillars’ – modelling, machinery and rendering – and will suit all PYTHA users, regardless of the version you are using. When you register for the Pytha Partners Convention, you’ll be invited to attend two of the following workshops: Modelling: explore new techniques and alternative functions to fast-track your modelling and boost your productivity. Machining: review the new Workshop and CAM interfaces, and learn more about Analyzer and working with CNC CAM interfaces (BSolid, Woodwop and more) Rendering: learn how to effectively apply surfaces and lighting with the new V23 RadioLAB, and impress your customers with stand-out renders. Developer Q & A Convention delegates will also enjoy a forum-style presentation with the developers of PYTHA, who’ll be front of stage and ready for your questions. This will be a great opportunity to ‘meet the makers’ and ask your whats, whys and hows. The developers will also be eager to hear your thoughts about where you see the future of PYTHA 3D CAD, so come armed with your best ideas!

Mark McCrindle to share his wisdom at Pytha Partners Convention

Is working with Generation Z zapping your energy? Are Millennials making you crazy? Or are you a part of the iGeneration and feeling misunderstood?

Mark McCrindle is an award-winning social researcher, best-selling author and influential thought leader with a great understanding of key social trends and their impact on our business operations – technologically, demographically, socially and economically. He believes it’s critical that organisations and leaders observe these changes, and respond to the trends in order to maintain engagement. The construction industry is certainly experiencing rapid changes in technology and demographics, and many business owners admit to struggling to keep up.  In their dealings with cabinetmakers, joiners, shopfitters and designers across the country, Pytha Partners have had many conversations with concerned operators about the declining number of apprentices, and the challenges they face in keeping younger staff on board long enough to train them well. The data seems to reflect these concerns: despite some enthusiastic efforts by various levels of government to increase the uptake of apprenticeships and traineeships, numbers in most states continue to decline. On the other hand, university participation rates are on the rise, as are the numbers of young people moving directly into the labour market. What’s really concerning, though, is that those that do enter an apprenticeship directly out of school have a pretty low chance of finishing their time, with just over half collecting a trade certificate. Mark will offer...
