I only can agree to You 100%
The only advantage I have against You is, that - due to English is not my first language - I get the pleasure to not be forced to understand all that stuff 100%
Allow me to add one single statement here, which is:
"Nobody is forced to use any software with which man could not identify!"
Maybe the reason for changing software and companies is also related to the behaviour!
End of my statement
Lol... well aren’t we testy..
Solid edge is a watered down version of SolidWorks which is a watered down version of Inventor which is a watered down version of ProE... I have been programming design software since you were in diapers. Sheet metal is the only thing that SE has going for it, but it’s still no better than Inventors sheet metal. As for cutouts... I have no idea what you are talking about... heck, Inventor has a library of punch’s for sheet metal... you can do things in Inventor in a fraction of the time that it takes in SE and you can do some things that you can only dream about in SE. so calm your **bleep**...
Sorry, but I couldn't resist replying.
Solid Edge was originally by Intergraph as a development of their EMS parametric modelling system.
EMS was introduced over a year before ProE.
A minor detail though.
I think you just need to realise that they all work the same but different.
