Review Article
  • Solidworks leaves me in the lurch September 07, 2009
    Reviewed by 'Mike des Ligneris'
    2009 is the first year out of 12 that I have defaulted on the Subscription payment to SW
    I applaud the advancements but I feel strongly about a software vendor that got me on board because they sold a PC-based 3D CAD system which one-man users such as myself were waiting for, but now are playing with the 'big boys' and still expecting me to fund the salaries of all the VAR's and programmers.
    I want a low-cost version of the basic functions that my son and other yougsters can buy and use without breaking the bank. Including a 'greenness' program that tells me to use aluminum rather than magnesium is just hype. Come on Solidworks, I supported you for 12 years, now give me a break and reduce my subscription fee as a reward for long service and also something that I can use economically when I retire.
