The best asistant for a draughtsman

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Solidworks is really simple yet highly functional software. I use it for designing, analyzing machines or machines element. And time to time, I enjoy trying to implement my ideas on creating new machine design and see if it could operate as I imagine.

Pros:

+ It is easy to learn and fun to use + It satisfies almost everything a modeller need such as, drawing, assembling, disassembling, animation and analyzing. + It has really useful tools to help user make modelling fast, effective and authentic way. + Interface design leave no room for messed up workspace

Cons:

- It's very expensive and system requirements are high.. especially for those who are dealing with comparatively simpler projects. - Error messages can be far from being clear and helpful.

Software which helps to review your drawings

4.0 last year

Comments: Overall experience i can say is good, even though it is a very useful software which has lots of customization options in it, we cannot change the rules once it is setBut outer wise it is a preferable software

Pros:

The most i liked about this software is that we can customize our options and requirements as required from software user and do changes accordingly even before the setupIt is a very useful tool where you can upload your drawing and send it for review for respective cross functional team having drawing software in itRespective CFT can review the drawing and model accordingly and move the status to either next stage or move back for re-draftIt acts like a configuration management where you can keep the updated software and also have a record of previous versions of it

Cons:

The couple of cons i observed in this software is that the application will crash during producing drawing and during saving for drawing which have huge files or number of components are moreWhich in turn kill our time for just spending time to auto recoverWe cannot add all the items in drawing, example sealants which comes between assemblies and to be captured separately

Slower every year and more unreliable than ever

1.0 4 years ago

Comments: I am not satisfied with this product. It gets even slower and unreliable every year. Its UI is outdated and ugly.

Pros:

Nothing in particular is worth noting in this software

Cons:

Its user interface greatly resembles Windows 95 (very outdated graphics). It gets slower every year in terms of performance. I have been using it for three years straight (versions 2017 to 2020) and with every update it did get more unstable (even with clean installations) and slow. I highly despise the fact that the 2020 version does not refresh the folders automatically so that I always have to do a manual refresh for the newly created files to appear.

Worth for money for reviewing drawing online

4.0 last year

Comments: Overall experience i can say moderate as one good thing is that we can make customization options of review and storage before we buy the software, but only issue is that crash of drawing due to high file size resulting in wasting of time in creating the drawing if it crashes

Pros:

The most i am impressed about this software is that any department can review the drawing in PDM board and provide comments on this and change the state of work from in progress to completion of work and store the approved drawing in it which is similar to configuration management systems itself

Cons:

The only con we are facing the issue is that software is getting crashed if the assembly drawing has too many components in it, which results in delay in making drawing and releasing it on time

A complete business rev control and process management system

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: Rev control, file management, business process management, ease of use.

Pros:

The greatest advantage to this software is the level of customization that is possible. I have developed the workflow tool in our business to support not only Engineering-centric processes - but also Quality, Operations and even Purchasing/Accounting processes are supported.

Cons:

Some elements of the development interface take a little patience and a bit of getting used to. There are several dialog boxes in the development area that don't support copy and paste, or select all (Ctrl+A), etc. You get used to working around these elements, but I'd like to see these features added.
