SolidWorks 2005 Beta 1

I've been going through the What's New portion of the software and must say that I, yes even I the cynical critic, feel that this will be the best release we have had from SolidWorks in some time. It seems that they are really listening to the users and making the features more robust. It has a more mature overall feel. I have yet to do real day to day work with it, but from what I've seen this should be a well received release. (No, I didn't get a job at SW or a reseller, nor am I now paid for my opinion.)

Way to go Solidworks!

I don't have the luxury to install the Beta on a separate machine. Are there any issues with installing it on my production machine in a new folder?

Wayne, I'm certainly not one to suppress free speech, but the beta agreement makes it pretty clear that you shouldn't talk about it here.

There is a discussion group for questions like that.

Hi,

How can I get my hands on SolidWorks 2005 Beta 1? I am currently residing in Melbourne Australia.

Oops, first time on this program. I found the proper area and the question has already been asked.

Depends on what work you do but at last SW have made a decent effort to bring us a comprehensive set of functional tools rather than a few tokens here and there. Kind of surprised me - just when I was writing them off and looking elsewhere. Some users might be disappointed that their special interest has minimal improvements however. No doubt there will be a lot for them next time now that the overdue stuff is done.Like what I see so far.

Not only did I find some issues, but the app used to report them crashed!
