Users in Japan Test Drive SOLIDWORKS 2017

The amazing SOLIDWORKS R&D team travels the world and scours the Web for user feedback. This exercise is especially critical during the annual SOLIDWORKS beta period. Prior to each release, the development team visits users and invites them to test out new features and enhancements. The thoughts users share during the yearly beta program are critical to providing you with the best possible product design and engineering ecosystem.

Before the SOLIDWORKS 2017 release, the team in Japan sat down with local users and members of the Global R&D team to discuss specific development areas and favorite new features. In this video, you’ll hear members of the SOLIDWORKS R&D team, including Marlon Banta, Wenzhong Zhao, and Kevin O’Neill, discuss key focus areas and features including quality and performance, 3D Interconnect, Facility Layout and Magnetic Mates. In addition, you’ll hear users explain their preferred updates on everything from the UI to Inspection.

In this video, SOLIDWORKS users, Kumiko Yamaguchi and Yoshihiro Dobashi discuss additional updates and why they feel that the features will benefit their work moving forward. The R&D team also returns to discuss updates in quality, MBD and animation.
