It’s that time of year again. A new SOLIDWORKS release is just around the corner.
But you don’t have to wait until the actual SP0 release in October to take the new features for a test drive before it deploys. You can try out the new features and enhancements now and help the SOLIDWORKS research and development team improve the full release.
What’s In It For You?
You have an opportunity to work with the R&D team to drive the development of the products in a meaningful direction for your application. You can interact with other passionate users from around the globe and even get your name on the leaderboard (as my peer Daniel Lyon did) by submitting “issues” for points and a shot at a $500 prize.
SOLIDWORKS Beta 2020 gives you a great chance to try out new features that you would otherwise have to wait until October to explore.
Getting Started in SOLIDWORKS Beta
It’s easier than ever to get started with the online option, no install required.
Head over to the SOLIDWORKS beta website and log in. Next, choose to test SOLIDWORKS 2020 in an online browser-based environment by selecting “test online” or choose to “download” and install a local version. I was up and running in SOLIDWORKS in less than two minutes using the online option.
Don’t forget to check out the “What’s New” document located under the Help drop down menu.
I’m always excited about the next release and have been impressed over the years with SOLIDWORKS’ ability to deliver customer-driven enhancements and improve the product development process. This year, the focus is to improve performance, streamline workflows and connect to the cloud-based design-to-manufacturing ecosystems. Get a sneak peek at SOLIDWORKS 2020 now by signing up for the beta program!
