Guys,

 

Maybe you know or don't Solid Edge is 20 years old today. Congratulations to developers, users, members of community, everybody who use this cool software. I hope next 20 years will be successful too.

 

Today, I'm wearing this special "T-shirt" (no more only this Smiley Happy )!

You may be revealing too much. But Happy Birthday SE. But really only 20 years? I used it the first time in 2000 meaning it was only 4 years old then.

Dan Staples doesn't look a day over 40.  He must have been an infant when he started developing Solid Edge.

I perhaps used it a couple of years before Bruce when SE was just 2 yrs old and I was a solid modeling toddler. So I should say we (me and SE) grew up together and what fun it was in retrospect !!

  

There is nothing like seeing your favourite CAD program grow and advance with one's career. Thank you Solid Edge for making me what I am best known for today !!

'97 for me in production (3.5), but we were sent BETA copies as an I/EMS customer so started playing with it as of V1.  And for some reason I thought SE was 20 years old last year as I though V1 was released in '95, thus making SE 21 years old this year...


Thanks,

Ken,

I was only 16-17 years in those time so I don't have any own experiences. What I know is that (you are right) V1 was announced in October 1995, but it was released to market in April 1996, so SE has two birthdays 🎂 .
Can anybody confirm me from Siemens side?
