Star of the Week:

Each week during the SolidWorks 2012 Beta program, the Beta Executive Team will award a prize to the person who has discovered and submitted the most interesting, important, or severe bug during the previous week. These bugs should be readily reproducible and should relate to some new feature of SolidWorks 2012, SolidWorks Simulation 2012, or SolidWorks Enterprise PDM 2012. Judging will be based on the impact of the bug on the overall use or performance of the product, as well as the effort of the user to test, reproduce, and report the bug. Learn more by clicking here
