Bags of Money

One of my customers sent me this email today: “If you can come up with a piece of software that would allow SolidWorks users to save to a previous version of SolidWorks you’d do quite well with it. That’s a major problem for all SolidWorks users, lack of reverse compatability. Even if the file wasn’t fully functional (a newer version may have features that didn’t exist before) it would still be useful to save a file that was a solid with some features in the feature tree. Just a suggestion, you’d make bags of money with that one.”

I replied, “Yes, and most probably get myself fired from the SolidWorks Partner Program as well.”
