If so what are the opinions on it?
I've not had much time exploring it but the amount I've explored MBD, it was really nice/easy to handle. You can request your VAR for a demonstration to get more idea on the capabilities.
Yes SW MBD was part of beta program. In my opinion these kind of tools are the need of near future specially when one is looking to go paper less manufacturing. With intelligence built into the model itself, I'm sure it is going to benefit many people down the line.

I wish I had taken the time to load the Beat this time. This is something we had been looking for for a long time. Did it do most everything a drawing would without difficulty?
