Compatibility of Meridian 2017R2 with SOLIDWORKS 2018

Hi guys,


I am just wondering about the possibility of getting homologation for SOLIDWORKS 2018 versions in Meridian 2017R2.


The reason being, our customer has clients on the 2018 SOLIDWORKS product and therefore they wish to use this version as well. They are however reluctant to upgrade to Meridian 2018 for a few months as they are concerned about the stability of the product so early in its life-cycle.

    Hi Owen, we did not need make any changes in Meridian to support SW 2018, so it probably works in 2017R2. As a rule we do not announce support for new CAD version on previous release, so I'm afraid I cannot give you the desired homologation.

    BTW I thought my English was pretty good, but needed to look that one up:-)

    Thanks Rudi for your response :) I didn't get a notification of a response to the tickets, hence my late reply.


    PS English is my first language and I had to look it up after one of the BlueCielo Engineers said it to me :)
