We evaluated Pro/ENGINEER, AutoCAD, and Solid Edge but chose SOLIDWORKS software because it is easy to use. We also liked the company’s customer service, especially its support of the software’s sheet metal functionality. For presentations, we have found that using Visualize rendering software to create photorealistic images greatly improves our ability to present and share product ideas. The images are incredibly realistic and often help in eliminating or changing design issues before reaching the prototype phase.
