I now have version ST4 but browsing the site I found a link to upgrade to ST5, so I downloaded it and saw it was quite a bit larger than ST4 at 2.2GB which took a couple hours to download. When I went to install it, the selection was to install ST4 not ST5.
Thanks for the follow-up. I'll check it out. I've been impressed so far with ST4 having tutorials and lessons which actually match the program so far. Other CAD programs I've tried have frustrated me away because they didn't do this. Has it been your experience to expect the ST5 tutorials and lessons to have been updated along with the new release?
All, the ST5 version should definitely be up now, and, yes, the tutorials should also be updated to the latest version. Please let us know how the learning experience for Solid Edge is working for you. I am globally responsible for the Solid Edge business and we are very interested in making the learning experience as simple as possible. If you are interested in design projects, you could check out a couple of sites: 1. Www.ontheedge.dezignstuff.com. The guys there are currently working on a "flexcavator" project, which should be fun and you can participate with your student version. 2. Www.localmotors.com. This s a community that does all kinds of design work around vehicles. If you want to actively participate, you would however need to register, and download a free trial version, or rent the Design1 version of Solid Edge for 20$ per month. I will check in here from time to time, so let me know your thoughts on the learning experience. Thanks Karsten Karsten Newbury GM Solid Edge

That looks like a very resourceful blog! Once I've mastered Solid Edge, will I have problems working with/integrating with CAD colleagues who use Solidworks or Inventor? Can ST4 be upgraded to ST5 easily from within ST4? If so how? Or, do I have to do the whole giant download, registrtation key thing all over again?
