Alibre 2018 -- Integrated 3D CAD

After one year of new Alibre we are pleased that Alibre 2018 is finally out there being used. The few reported problems are now mostly fixed. The important part of the upgrade was the ACIS core modelling change which gives the software a secure stable platform for further development.

We are very happy with the interaction with customers and the Alibre developers. The future Alibre product will become our customers current wish list.
