Overall Satisfaction with SOLIDWORKS

Solidworks is used to review 3D model files by estimating and engineering. Also used in production to create flat patterns from customer-supplied sheet metal model files and create in-house shop drawings to define limited dimension drawings from customers.
  • Review and measure model files.
  • Convert sheetmetal model file to flat patterns.
  • Create in-hose drawings.
  • Export model characteristics more easily.
  • Easily convert surfaces to extrusions.
  • Model review and dimensioning
  • Sheet metal converting functions
  • Creating drawings
  • It has standardized our estimating department.
  • It has decreased the time to create flat patterns.
  • It has decreased the time to create in house drawings.
PTC Creo was used for several years but was too complex for users even when simple tasks were required.

Solidworks is suited for what we do as a company by being versatile and having functions across multiple departments, also is very user-friendly and there are many users worldwide making it easy to find tips on troubleshooting issues. Pricing is our biggest concern.
