My name is Rob and I am an Engineer with InstantUpright – See website below.
In short we are a Aluminium scaffold company looking at moving to a 3D package. We currently use 2D autocad for all of our designs, and have a database containing over 20 years worth of Autocad drawings.
The main software contenders are between Solidworks & Inventor. I am wondering would you be able to give me an unbiased opinion.
You understand what it is like talking to each of the vendors whom obviously push their own product.
Looking forward to hearing any advice that you may have.
P.S. I am now following you on Twitter! You can follow me back on Twitter @Barrer1
A good way to start would be to go to my website at http://www.cad-portal.com and download the paper on how to select an MCAD system.
Contact me at rayk at Technicom.com if any questions?
Thanks for the heads up on this new company startup. I am back to using Inventor, as my school year is up and so is the SolidWorks student license.
I totally understood all of that
