SolidWorks 2008 was a nightmare for many third party add-in developers such as myself. I am pleased to report that SolidWorks 2009 will not be a repeat show. At SYCODE, we have updated our SolidWorks add-ins (all 16 of them) to work with SolidWorks 2009 Beta 1. We are now testing them to check for weird behaviour. So far everything looks good and I sincerely hope that it stays that way till the final release.
In my opinion, people may adopt SolidWorks 2009 much faster than they adopted SolidWorks 2008. In fact, I will not be surprised of the early adoptors are the ones that skipped SolidWorks 2008 altogether.
What do you think?
