Just received MEW 195 today. A most interesting article about free CAD software got my attention. First time I heard that parametric 2D programs exist in the form of Solidedge 2D from Siemens. After almost useless struggling with non-parametric programs I was hooked. I use the parametric 3D program Alibre, but for simple 2D drawings this is not very suitable or comfortable

Ok, made the registration with all the obligatory fields, but the download resulted in a (very strange) error message. I tried two browsers and several languages (for the software), but no success. To make the bucket full, the message contains an invalid email address.

So has someone successfully downloaded this prog ? if yes, how?

Greetings, Hansrudolf

Hansrudolf, cb, I have the full licensed 3D version but it was the free 2D version that first "Hooked" me on the Siemens Solidedge. I downloaded the free 2D version quite a while back with no problems, so something must have changed.. By the way if you ever manage to download the free version you will find it a very capable programme that's not to difficult to learn. Have you contacted Solidedge about the problem ?I feel sure they will be able to sort it out.

I just tried to update my version of Solidedge, and it would appear that the servers are down. And since it now won't run at all without a minimum of a licence update, that's a bit of a pain.

Good to know I'm not alone with this problem!

I will try again tomorrow, and when the problem persists, call the phone number given on the website.

I have just succesfully downloaded this CAD software so I guess they have rectified the problem (or every other MEW reader has now finished downloading LOL)
