Want to start with ST8, why should or not install it

Dear SE believers Smiley Wink

 

I have been offline for a while due heavy projects, so sorry for that and the questions below. However I don't want to spend hours reading if we should already install ST8.

 

Normally we install with every new release SE, until now we had many start-up problems (first real version was ST7 that worked perfect from the start).

 

Are there problems that will slow down our work process or does it work good (with some minor problems)?

Are there minor problems? And if yes, what are the minor problems?

Are there positive new features that work really good?

 

I really want to know this, so if you could reply it would be really appreciated Smiley Very Happy

Hi Daniel,

 

ST8 has been performing solidly for us since the release, even with my later leap into Windows 10, it continued to function as expected.....also, MP1 has been released, and it has fixed a few anomolies that I hadn't even encountered.

Hi Sean, thank you for the reply.
So until now no problems like strange crashes?

Daniel,

 

Nothing that I can attribute to Solid Edge alone, more my own doing, so no, nothing.

Hi Daniel,

 

We are using it from day one that it came available through the download (07-06-15), and I have done the remote beta for ST*, we had no problems at all.

 

Kind regards,

Hello, I wanted to join the question. How ST8 cooperation with Teamcenter, if there are any problems that were not in ST7, whether on the contrary it is much better ?

W10 is not yet supported by Siemens, so the advice for now is to use W7 or W8.

I installed ST8 the moment it was available.

It works solid, but gives some time-out in assembly after selecting a part. This is new for me since ST8.

I havan't found any real improvements (yet?).

Dank je @Joris. Als jij er al tevreden over bent moet het wel de moeite waard zijn
