Sure summer officially started last week which is sort of a big deal, but if you are a hard core SolidWorks user, the arrival of summer means much more then backyard bar-b-que's, fun in the sun, and family vacations. It means that the next release of your favorite 3-D CAD software is available for testing!
Starting today the first beta release for SolidWorks 2012 is available for download by subscription customers via the customer portal. You can get all the details by visiting The SolidWorks 2012 Beta Site.
There are lots of prizes to be had, and lots of new features to discover.
