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?
