Grabcad integration in Solidworks 2017
I'm trying to integrate Grabcad as described on the website into solidworks, but I'm not able to activate the plugin for solidworks as shown/described here:
Does anyone have a solution?
If you are using Solidworks 2017 it is not yet supported as far as I am aware. I was very disappointed to find that out when I upgraded to 2017 as I do every year.
Being a new user of GrabCad this is making me have serious second thoughts about its usefulness.
They are usually a month or so into the new year before they get it updated. I am always anxious to get the updated GC Add-On for SolidWorks but I see today that it is still not available.
They should consider signing up as SW beta testers when that is available so they can work toward having GC Workbench Add-on ready when the new version of SW comes out.
I just use the previous version of SW until the new add-on comes out. It is always hard to know when the new version is available as it doesn't seem to get announced anywhere. It would be nice to have a place to look to see the progress of the Add-On development.
Okay, so you've the same issues then I have. Let's hope that it will get integrated soon.
We're currently using the standalone version as "workaround". First we thought that it's gonna be not really cool (as I'm used to PDM Works in my former company) but as soon as we got used to it, it worked fine for our small team.
I am a new user and a new CAD user. I'm a mentor with a FRC team, on programming and was curious if there was something like git/github but for solidworks.
I'm definitely curious about grabcad as an option. Or any another alternatives that exist out there.
The GrabCAD Workbench add-in works fine with SolidWorks 2017. I did have to uninstall/reinstall to get it fully functional after updating SW. Don't know about 2018. 2018 is on service pack 1.0, I'd wait for the next service pack anyway. Have you tried firstname.lastname@example.org? They are usually responsive.
I got this april
Thanks for reaching out. I don't have a definitive date on when the web viewer will be updated for 2018 SolidWorks as we are still juggling development resources but I would expect this to be done around late June or early July. Sorry for the inconvenience and Ill keep you informed."
So if we take July as the date we can expect usability this will be a full 8 months after the 2018 SW release we can only use workbench for four months of the year!!!
Some one at Stratasys needs to look at this situation now as this is not a viable software solution for anyone using SW.
