SolidWorks World 2010 (Day 2) – SolidWorks V6

A quick note. I just returned from the Press Reception where I spoke to a bunch of interesting people. One extremely interesting person told me where the SolidWorks Direct Modeling technology has come from. I am not sure whether this has been cleared for disclosure as yet. So for now I am going to keep this to myself. Doing so will also serve another purpose – that of teasing you šŸ˜‰

However, what I can say (and show), without putting anybody into trouble, is that one of the images that I captured with my camera has “SolidWorks V6” in the title bar of the application window with an icon that says “V6”. Thanks to Josh Mings for bringing this to my attention. Here, see for yourself.

This will have implications – big ones.

    CATIA kernel here we come…

  • Uh-oh… That could mean bad news for Siemens PLM’s bottom line, or even for Solid Edge (I think SW having Parasolid kernels helps somewhat SE).

    Unless they go with a dual-kernel scheme like IronCAD. Might that not be necessary for backward compatibility?

  • Yep…Someone told me they saw that during the presentation…but I didn't catch it. Looks like things are going to be getting pretty interesting. šŸ™‚

    As you rightly pointed, if it is CGM it will be very interesting to see how the SW customers react to this…
