In Reply to: Which 3D CAD software is best? posted by Jim on September 11, 2003 at 02:12:17:
yah you're it's difficult to decide what 3D CAD software you need to use.i have some questions or pointers here as your guidelines that maybe of help for your to choose the best software.
1. what is the nature of business?
2. what are you doing?
3. what is your existing CAD software?
4. why do you want to migrate from 2D to 3D?
5. what is the extent of your design? is it mechanical designs? if yes,what type of mechanical designs.
6.do you do the moulding? how about cam?
these are the basic questions that you need to be answered with.
because you might be investing in a very expensive software but you will only be doing simple designs that a midrange cad software can do. you might also invest in a cad software that you wont be able to convert your existing 2d cad software.
also, you have to realise that migrating from 2d to 3D is painful but once you get to it, it will be more productive but cheaper if you got the right decision. it might also be more productive but expensive in terms of investment.
if you still need some more help or insights, you can pm me thru my yahoo messenger 'switipay1020'.
hope this helps.
