Latest service pack on Alibre 2018.

Alibre just sent out the latest update , which appeared in an email . They apologized for, that saying they had a glitch in their automatic up date server which will be fixed with the next service pack. Here is the text of their message :

• Fixed problem opening saved files when Windows username contained non-English characters
• Fixed failure exporting to other formats such as SolidWorks, Parasolid, BIP etc. on certain computers
• Fixed intermittent exceptions opening or saving workspaces and importing or exporting STEP files on some computers
• Fixed issue related to launching addons such as Alibre CAM on certain computers
• Fixed a crash in Sheetmetal Flange with miter for some specific geometry

Due to a prior bug in Alibre's 3rd party installer, users of Alibre Design 2018.0.0 will not receive an automatic update notification (sorry about that). This bug has been addressed moving forward, and in the future you will receive automatic update notifications. Please manually download the new release:
