solidworks 2008 logoSolidWorks sent out their press release today for SolidWorks 2008. It’s currently in the last stages of Beta and can be purchased, but there is no published timeline of when it starts to ship. Some may not think so, but I see a lot of benifits coming out in this release. I also see where some further improvements could be made. I’ll be talking about them over the next few post.

Included in the press release is a podcast. It has my name as the beta user being interviewed, but it doesn’t sound like me. Man, I sound weird… and a little tired. Nontheless, enjoy the news and the cast.
