Who Says Twitter Is Useless?

Who says Twitter is useless? Today I actually found myself using it to test my SolidWorks add-ins. At SYCODE, we are getting ready to release our CATIA V4 and V5 file import add-ins for SolidWorks. The thing is we do not have a CATIA license here in office. So stress testing of the add-ins is limited to the few CATIA files that we have managed to accumulate over time, which is not a lot.

So I posted a status update on Twitter saying:

Looking for some bad ass CATIA V4 and V5 files to test our CATIA import add-ins for SolidWorks. Zip & send to deelip (at) sycode (dot) com.

And they started coming in, all shapes and sizes. I even started updating people on the progress of my testing. Here are a couple of tweets from good Samaritans.

And here are my replies.
