    Should we update from 2015 to 2016 sp5 or 2017 sp1?

      Hi All,


      We're currently on SW2015 sp5

      And EPDM  Build 15.4


      From what I could gather on this forum, 2017 SP1 is more prone to slow performance problems than 2016 SP5

      And didn't see any real 'must have' features in 2017 yet.


      We're using


      Basic part modeling

      Lots of weldments

      Basic assemblies and drawings

      Visualize (potentially)


      My hunch is it's safer (and will be more productive) to install 2016 sp5 for now.


      Any thoughts from people on either platform?


      We always hear the problems, but is anyone using 2017 and EPDM with great success?

      Or wish you could go back to 2016?
