I think it's the best tool for studios that need a pipeline, such as making a feature film, etc. However, there are few convenient plug-ins, so it is difficult to make small turns.

It's great for complex and large projects eg the automotive or aerospace industry as it. It has a good way of managing and controlling all the large volumes of models. But it's not suited for doing small projects quickly on the other hand. Like one-off bespoke designs.

Siemens AG

  • The thing that I need to keep all the parts, usually in common with other assemblies, in the same folder is very uncomfortable if I need to revise a single component.
  • I would prefer to have 1 file for each part and just select it when needed. (with Solidedge this is possible).

    Compared to other Cad software which it competes against, it's by far the least user-friendly out there. As most of the user interface seems to be in line with the Windows XP era. The way some features are used is very dated, going back to how early cad software was used back in the 80/90 and has not been designed for younger users. Nor is it similar to another type of software out today making it harder to get used to it

    I find DraftSight as a pure 2d integration of Siemens NX CAD. They don't collide, they are useful for different needs.
