  1. Good day all.

    As per the title, do we have any SolidWorks users on this forum, and if so what version are you running?

    Thanks for your time.

    Best Regards.

    With reference to Linux, try using FreeCad SourceForge.net • Index page but make sure it is the latest 0.13 branch.
    The software is a lot better than the impression gained from a first try at using it.

    Mark, Never used it with Mach3 i bought it to create code for complex milling operations on my Hurco VM20 but it is pretty good especially the high speed milling. It does have a post processor for mach3 tho ;-)

    You can run Solidworks (well at least the old 2000 version I have) on Windows XP run on VirtualBox in Linux. Yes I know that it's still Windoze but at least you have some security by running it in Linux.
