Solidworks Simulation Trial

When I first got this email, I was really excited.  Then I read through it and saw all the fine print and caveats to be able to obtain a free trial - something that should be available to anyone at any time - and I got severally depressed.

None the less, if you:

  • Already own Solidworks 2009 or later,
  • Attend the 90-minute webinar,
  • Pay attention to get an access code during/after the webinar, and
  • Have 30 days available in your production schedule to test Simulation before the code expires,

then you are the target market for this Solidworks Simulation offer.  Sorry everyone else.

I don't know about the rest of you, but when I got this email I was hoping this was a way to attract more users to Solidworks, not try to upsell existing users.  Also, when I get a trial, I want to be able to utilize the trial on my schedule, not when the seller tells me I can.

I must attend a mandatory webinar?  Who has time for that? 

I get 30 days after the webinar to test simulation?  I can't test new software on my own schedule?

Although the time frame is limiting (or maybe the email notification is poorly understood), the rest of the offer is worth checking out.  Even Tech4PD debates the value of upfront simulation embedded into your CAD tool.  Here is a free, no obligation, way to try it for yourself.

 REGISTER HERE for the webinar on SEPT. 19th at 1:00 pm ET (10 am PT)

Offer valid in North America only.
