Earlier today in my post titled “SolidWorks World 2012 Expectations” I hoped that SolidWorks would shed some light on SolidWorks V6 announced a couple of years ago. The general session of the first day of SolidWorks World 2012 is currently underway and from the tweets coming out I gather that SolidWorks V6 will be released in 2013.
SolidWorks 2013 will be released as normally planned and I presume the current Parasolid-based code will be continued to be developed for some time. SolidWorks is making it clear that customers will not be forced to migrate to the new V6 platform.
So its finally happening then. Here is a picture of SolidWorks V6 shown at SolidWorks World 2010.
