I know that there is a small base of engineers here and we are looking to migrate away from autocad t oa real 3d cad program. I've had a demo of solidworks 2007 pretty impressive, doesn't really look like there is a really large learing curve, just really keping your mind set on UCS and parametrics. The Cosmos integration is rather nice as well for doinf FEA's. So I'd like to here from some of you that have had experience with both systems. From what I gather they say Pro/e has a 1 year learning curve vs Sloidworks at a 6mos. A majority of our product are small single piece designs, we re getting more involved with multipiece assemblies, with that in mind what do you guys think ??
