Welcome to the April 2011 edition of Striker Systems News & Events. 


PARTshare Now Available for Solid Edge!

If you are a Striker Systems customer using Solid Edge, you will want to take note of this announcement.  Striker Systems is pleased to announce the availability of PARTshare for Solid Edge.  PARTshare is a Solid Edge add-in that allows Solid Edge to share sheet metal parts and assemblies with Striker's SS-Nest software.  Previously available only for SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor,  PARTshare has now been advanced to provide this same level of support for Solid Edge.  Demonstration materials are still being developed, so if you're interested in seeing the PARTshare interface for Solid Edge contract Striker Systems sales and arrange a comprehensive web presentation.

Productivity Classes Now Open to all Customers

Striker Systems recently began offering one-day productivity training at no additional cost to our Technology Assurance Program members.  These classes are designed for existing Striker Systems customers who want to optimize their Striker Systems software use.  We have had substantial interest in the Striker Productivity Classes from customers that are not Technology Assurance Program members.  To accommodate these customers we have decided to open the classes to all customers.  For customers who are not Technology Assurance Program members, the cost for attendance is $250 per student.  Striker Productivity Classes will continue to be offered to our Technology Assurance Program members at no additional cost.
