Solid Edge Viewer... nowhere to be found!

I just had a NEW customer ask where they can get the Solid Edge Viewer so they can easily look at what we're doing for them. I stupidly sent to Siemens/ Solid edge, thinking it would be up front and center.... but it's nowhere to be found.

 

Ever wonder why Solid Edge struggles to get attention?

 

So now I've wasted 1/2 hour searching myself, with a customer wondering wjat the hell is going on.

 

Thanks Siemens.... you really understand your customers!  /s

Hi Bob:

 

Can understand your frustration.

 

An easier way is to use Google:

https://www.google.co.in/search?q=Solid+Edge+Viewer+download&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=6DahVoeY...

 

which leads to:

http://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en_us/products/solid-edge/freeviewer/download.shtml

 

For that matter neither Bing or Google is needed; search for Solid Edge Viewer in the search field at the top of this forum under Knowledge Base, which took me to:

https://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en_us/products/solid-edge/freeviewer/index.cfm

 

Hope you find this useful.

Hi Bob,

 

Alternatively, you could download it [and it's MP4] directly, and send them a Dropbox [or similar] link.....they don't seem to be too big of a download, compared to SE proper. Robot wink

Thank you all.... I of course did do a Bing and found it.

 

But the reason for my post is to express my wonderment as to who does The Solid Edge website... Do they ever think about perspective customers who just walk away.  I'm sure my new customer has to wonder about Solid Edge.

Have to agree Bob.

 

....while the search link takes the user to the right place to sign up for a download....the same locale cannot be found from the web page, even when using existing "quick" navigation.

Someone from Siemens at SEU15 said the website was soon going to get a big makeover.

I've yet to see any change.

Edit: Except perhaps more use of the page width?

(All in tongue-in-cheek) Keep in mind "soon" means different things to different people. Soon at Siemens could me within the next 4 years after the request has gone through sub-committee after sub-committee and having each participant consuming at least a gallon of coffee in meetings.
