Day 4: Custom Apps | 12 Days of Subscriptmas Blogs

On the fourth day of Subscriptmas, we have custom apps calling, with our very own custom suite, CMSapps. We first introduced our custom apps suite at our SOLIDWORKS 2016 launch event and at our SOLIDWORKS 2017 grand launch event in October, we officially launched it as a new service complimentary to our Subscription Customers. Our suite of custom apps, CMSapps is a suite of custom built applications designed to reinvent the SOLIDWORKS experience and stay connected with CAD MicroSolutions; available exclusively to our Subscription Customers! CMSapps is CAD MicroSolutions’ own “app store” for SOLIDWORKS, housing tools that range from specialized professional applications to overcome challenges and simplify processes inside of SOLIDWORKS to apps intended solely for entertainment. CMSapps is included as part of our Subscription Services at no additional cost. cmsapps-interface-v1Here’s a sneak peak of some of the apps currently available within CMSapps: Shapes
