This week we stopped by the Dassault Systèmes headquarters outside of Boston, MA to talk with SolidWorks CEO Bertrand Sicot about what we can expect from SolidWorks 2014 and other SolidWorks products as we approach the new year. We’ll talk with Bertrand about everything from what’s new in SolidWorks 2014 to what we can expect from the yet-to-be-released Mechanical Conceptual software.

As if SolidWorks World 2013 couldn’t have been any more bangin’–it was. We got the chance to sit down with the guy who is controlling the future of your favorite CAD package like a gypsy with a crystal ball….Mr. Bertrand Sicot! In our video interview, we talk with Bertrand about what it’s been like as CEO so far, what the new Mechanical Conceptual means for SolidWorks designers, and how SolidWorks is positioning itself in the Maker Revolution.
Well, the dust has finally settled from all the excitement in Orlando this year as thousands flocked to the fifteenth annual SolidWorks World at the Dolphin Hotel at Walt Disney World. Between the amazing guest speakers (Art Thompson, Technical Project Director for Red Bull Stratos for example) and exciting announcements (Mechanical Conceptual, Augmented Reality eDrawings), there was something for designers, engineers, and anybody who gives a hoot about design and manufacturing. Hold onto your socks as we dish out some highlights in this year’s SolidSmack #SWW13 Smackdown.
You see that face? Get ready to see it on an infrequent basis and perhaps in your head as you lie awake at night. That is the new face of SolidWorks. The new CEO, Bertrand Sicot. Executive power has been shaken up in Dassault Systemes much like a whale launching itself from the deep while mixing a cocktail.
Regardless of that being the best analogy you’ve ever heard, leadership changes are in play, new positions are being created and Dassault Systemes is on the hunt to push their software and their ideas for 3D CAD Tech into every region of the globe.
I talked with Jeff Ray and Bertrand Sicot over the phone earlier today. Here’s what they had to say about the change and what it means for SolidWorks customer and Dassault as a whole. Plus, we catch up with Jeff about the “kill SolidWorks” comment, what’s happening with the Labs group and see where Bertrand wants to take SolidWorks.
