Breaking news: the Future of Bunkspeed

Bunkspeed becomes SOLIDWORKS VisualizeDear Bunkspeed Clients,

We want to make you aware of an important and very positive change for Bunkspeed.  This notification is intended to provide you sufficient notice to understand your options, evaluate your needs and take any required action during this change.

As valued clients, we first and foremost want to thank you for your continued support. We also want to ensure that you have the best experience possible with our brand at all times.

We are proud to announce that following the acquisition by Dassault Systèmes, Bunkspeed is now part of Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS, and will be renamed SOLIDWORKS Visualize. We are very excited about this change which includes the merge into to the renowned infrastructure of SOLIDWORKS and team growth. We are using this opportunity to streamline our product offering, rebrand, and focus efforts on more concise and valuable solutions based on your feedback and interests. (SOLIDWORKS Visualize products will still support other CAD packages alongside other exciting things in the works).

Please Note:

  • If you are on an active maintenance subscription for Bunkspeed SHOT, you will be eligible for SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard upon availability.
  • If you are on an active maintenance subscription for Bunkspeed MOVE, PRO, ZOOM or DRIVE you will be eligible for SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional upon availability. (Yes, this means you get some exciting new functionality historically only available in our premium products for free!)
  • If you are not on an active maintenance subscription, we will honor the usual upgrade process to the new SOLIDWORKS Visualize products as well.
  • After December 31st, 2015, no Bunkspeed products prior to 2014 versions will be supported. License transfers, provision of installers and individualized support for legacy versions will come to an end. This change applies to both standalone and network (floating) licenses.
