Well SolidWorks lifted the embargo of the 2013 beta program allowing everyone to say whatever they like about the new product. SolidWorks also has continued to push out a number of updates and "Sneak Peaks" of the next major release of the SolidWorks product line. 2013 looks good and we are going to be starting the What's New Series here soon.
About this time every year right after SolidWorks makes a pre-release version of the next build of SolidWorks available to the public, a number of in-depth posts start to surface about the product. This is when you can really get a feel of what users impressions of the product is. This release is about small upgrades and necessary enhancements to much of the core product.
As we begin next week to break down the entire What's New manual, you will also get a sense of what the real goals were with this release. The product that seems to have gotten a large UI and functionality update is Enterprise PDM, especially on the administrative side of the product. What are your thoughts thus far? ~Lou
