I’ve been on early betas of this product and it makes the SolidWorks to modo workflow even smoother and easier to understand when you get into modo. It’s simply a must have if you use SolidWorks and modo or have thought about it in the past. You can get all the fabulous modo for SolidWorks kit goodness (videos, features, learnin’ and more) on their site.

The modo for SolidWorks kit is for modo 501 SP2 or later. The intro price will be $299 and includes the PAD / Product and Automotive Design Kit and the SES 1 / Studio Environment Set 1 Kit. Sah-weeeet!!
