Solid Edge University 2014

John Pearson - Monday, April 28, 2014

Join us at Solid Edge University 2014 and Re-imagine What’s Possible

If you haven’t already registered for this annual event, there is still time to join us in Atlanta from May 12-14, 2014. Designfusion will have 5 members of our team present at this year’s event. Three of them will be presenting as guest speakers. This conference continues to grow each year, and this year is no different. This year users can:

    •      - Obtain New Solid Edge Certification
    •      - Learn about the new capabilities of Solid Edge ST7
  •      - Meet the Solid Edge development team
  •      - Network with peers and Designfusion technical experts
  •      - Attend numerous training sessions, and
  •      - Discover a range of complimentary applications from our best-in-breed technology partners.

Attendees will be welcomed at the Westin Peachtree Plaza, in Atlanta, GA, on Monday May 12 with a Welcome Reception from 6 pm to 8 pm. But the real excitement starts on Tuesday May 13, with the launch of ST7. Below are the tentative schedules for Tuesday and Wednesday.

 

 

 

 

You can see that, with this jam packed schedule, the learning potential is huge. This is not a marketing conference but a conference designed to educate users. This is why we call it Solid Edge University. So if you haven’t already registered, there’s still time to do so at http://solidedgeu.com/. We hope to see you there.

ST6 Released!

Hot off the Press….ST6 RELEASED!!!

It is with great anticipation and excitement that I can say Solid Edge ST6 has once again been produced as a top quality product that has TONS of new functionality and features.  The latest version of Solid Edge has been released…officially. 

You may have received a new license file via email earlier.  As this is (once again) an exciting release I wanted to mention a few very high level notes about installing.*

*Of course you will always read and follow the install notes.

Prior versions of Solid Edge required you to turn off User Account Control (UAC) before installing.  This is part of Microsoft’s attempt to make the software more secure.  There are certain areas in programs that require read access and other components that require read and write access.  Microsoft requires programs to have the areas that require write access to be set aside in a designated folder.  This folder, in ST6, is called the “Preferences” folder.

The preferences folder is here:

C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST6\Preferences

 Things like your license file (SELicense.dat by default), options.xml file, material.mtl file are located here now.  Things a user may need to have modified.  For those of you who attended my presentation on the SEAdmin functionality of SE the preferences folder location itself cannot be changed.   See below for an image of what the contents of this file are.

Happy Edging!
