20 years with SOLIDWORKS

Pretty much 20 years ago I installed SolidWorks 98, and very soon after that I upgraded it to 98Plus. It was so exciting! But I remember that there where no problems. NT4 was a stable OS for SW, still think that it was/is the best OS version MS ever created. Stable and no fancy graphics to slow down work 🙂

Now, with SOLIDWORKS 2018 (yes, SOLIDWORKS is written like that now), I wonder how little the end product has been changed. I mean 2D drawing of course. PDF/DXF, what ever, is still pretty much the same. Why? Well, the standard is excellent. But somehow I still would like to see faster development to get rid of the emailed pdf’s for example. And to get decent collaboration between designer, manufacturer etc…Something like MBD, some cloud service and stuff would be welcomed. Sure, they are there, they exist, but why companies are not using them yet?

Joulu

Tänä vuonna käytimme ns. joulurahat Hope ry:n ja Suomen Ratsastajainliiton yhteiseen keräykseen jolla tuetaan vähävaraisten lasten ja nuorten hevosharrastusta.

SLOWorks toivottaa hauskaa Joulua ja rauhallista Uutta vuotta!

Cloud based 3D-CAD

SLOWorks is now also started to use cloud based 3D-modelling software. The most biggest advantage to the customers is that now all can see and comment the same 3D-model, with browser or phone. Only internet connection is needed. There is no need to send anything through email or put pdf’s to cloud service and try to keep them updated when the models are revisioned elsewhere.
