Many thanks to those of you who participatedrendu2 in our first Shark webinar.  This webinar provided a technical overview of Shark FX and demonstrated several of the new features coming out in V7.  One of the key features of Shark is its ability to work with three integrated modeling methods that include associative NURBs, history based solid modeling, and direct face editing.

The webinar also includes some demos showing several of the new features in V7 such as G2 blending, interoperability with Inventor 2010 parts and assembly import, HDRI rendering, and The Gripper.
