    will you please show me F1 cars from last year for my technology homework

    I would love to use the F1 information you have here with my student. I do not, although, have Solidworks 2008 and can not open the files. Can they be posted in the 2007 or earlier format so that I can use them? OR can they be emailed to me in the older format. I think they would be great for my kids to see when they are designing their cars.

  • Mr. Bitting

    Can you please save these files into the 2007 version so that I can work with them?

    I believe you can save them into a previous version of the software. I can not do that to help out the gentleman above, but maybe one of you can.
