Overall Satisfaction with SOLIDWORKS
SOLIDWORKS is being used in engineering department to create solid models for our product, parts and assembly drawings later generates from solid model. Both 3D models and 2D drawings are used by other departments, and some times shared with external supplier. In certain situation, 3D model will be analyzed using SOLIDWORKS add-ons, such as simulation.
- Design solid model
- Generate 2D drawing
- Check parts fitment
- Sketch can be easier to use by adding more features
- Rotation by reference would be useful feature to be added
- Welding simulation would be helpful
- Improve design quality so spending on warranty reduced
- Improve documentation so existing parts and assemblies are easier to find
- Engineering time spend increased by implementing more 3D designing
SOLIDWORKS is easier to use with just enough useful features to work with, the designing process is fluid like regular flow of design thinking. The other two software are very similar to SOLIDWORKS, Inventor and Solid Edge are more advanced in certain areas of application, while SOLIDWORKS is more cost effective.
Do you think SOLIDWORKS delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with SOLIDWORKS's feature set?
Did SOLIDWORKS live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of SOLIDWORKS go as expected?
Would you buy SOLIDWORKS again?
SOLIDWORKS is a easy to use 3D modeling software suitable for designing less complex parts and assemblies, creating accurate size solid model using the software gives benefits such as visualize design concept without having to create physical model, which saves time and money. Checking interference ahead of time will also improve design quality.
