Hi, I’ve just subscribed to the drone workshop, but I realised that I won’t be available between 4 and 5 pm for two sessions. Is that an issue, or can I catch up the class later after its diffusion ?

Many thanks.

Hi Olive,
welcome to the forum!

In the case you can not make it to the webinars, you can watch the recordings of the sessions which we will provide. This should allow you to work on the homework assignments.

Cheers,

Hello, I have tried registering for this workshop but every time I enter my Simscale email and password I get the following message.

"Please make sure that you already have SimScale account and then try again.

Please note that you can only register with an existing SimScale account which you can create for free here ."
Can someone help me out with this?

Thank you!

Can I download the recordings of session afterwards? I am also unavailable for 2 days.
Is this workshop includes the CAD modeling of all parts? Cause I need practice for that also.

I didn’t receive a confirmation mail after registering.
my mail id is gurav.harsh@rediffmail.com

Hi Gurav,

as already mentioned we will provide the recordings of the webinars. Due the limited time the workshop will not include the CAD modelling of the parts. But I would recommend you to check out onshape.com

Your registration was successfully and we sent out the conformation email on 4:57 PM CEST. Can you please check your spam folder? In the case you did not receive the email please send me a message.

Cheers,

Milad

Have fun!

The workshop will be awesome :smile:

@Milad_Mafi : So do we have to download the model(s) in order to do our homework?

Thanks for your help and cheers!

Hey Jousef,

nice to see you here!

You don’t need to download the CAD model in order to do your homework. We will provide you with an public project link which you can import to your SimScale workspace after every session. Therefore no CAD tool is necessary!

Cheers,

Milad

Thank you @Milad_Mafi for your fast reply! Much appreciated!
