      srdfmc,

      I apologise if I have offended you - that was certainly not my intention. My comment was not directed towards your post, which was well written and added value to the discussion.
      My comment was in fact directed towards another poster who in my opinion left a facile and disingenuous reply to the original post - when someone asks for assistance, I think it is very bad manners to simply tell them what they should buy, without offering any explanation.
      Just buy a Bugatti Veyron - it's the best car in the world..
      The original poster clearly indicated that they had monetary constraints, hence the purpose of the discussion and hopefully some constructive advice.
      This poster offered none of that, hence my dissatisfaction with their reply and my irksomeness with the sub par grammar in which it was written. I would normally not comment on something such as that (I live in South Africa, where we have 12 official languages...), but the facile nature of the post compelled me to do so.
      So, I apologise if I have offended you, but I will not apologise for the original comment.

      I am sorry K.I.S.S. It seems I understood you wrongly. The point you raise is of absolute importance. I would like to apology myself for being a bit rude.

      Best regards,

      Serge

      No offence taken srdfmc, I just think (as I'm sure you do) that it's important in a forum such as this to always give the best intentioned and most constructive advice that you can - after all, the work is challenging enough as it is, so any constructive help can only be a good thing.

      Kind regards,

      John

      It depends on what kind of work you'll be doing. SWX (like all other parametric modelers) is great for iterative design; making lots of minor dimensional changes is very easy. Also lots of other people use it. However, parametric modelers can be very cumbersome for making large design changes, when you find that your base sketch the entire design is based on has to be changed. In this case, a direct modeler like Creo (which I've never used) or KeyCreator (which I've used for years) can be a lot faster, especially if you have lots of freeform surfaces.

      Direct modelers are also much better at working with imported data, which can be important for job shops and others who have to work with customer or vendor data. Parametric modelers generally have limited capability to work with anything but their own proprietary format.

      That said, the "best" CAD system for you may be the one you or your engineers are most familiar with.

      K.I.S.S., yes... I've learned that the quality of information on any public forum is usually directly proportional to the quality of the poster's spelling and grammar.

      Dana,

      In general I would agree with you - I think that it's one of the few effective yardsticks that a requester of advice can use to judge the quality of advice being proffered. But I do have one caveat to add, and that is for people offering advice when their first language isn't English. As a case in point, srdfmc made the pertinent point that Dassult Systems has done basically nothing to clamp down on piracy, and that in a competitive and probably very low margin environment you will struggle as a legitimate owner to recover the initial purchase costs.
      So I do think it's also important to view and evaluate the information intended by a post that is written by someone for whom English is not a first language, but in general, I concur.

      Hi Harshith,
      If you want to buy CAD software for your start up then you should buy that kind of software which have so many features and at the same time it should be cost effective.
      I would like you to suggest you a ActCAD software which has full functionality with affordable price.
      You can Download ActCAD software here

      Hey Harsith,
      First of all congratulations for having a startup , may your company reach heights. Now, speaking professionally when you are into a startup , you must go for a software which is equally efficient to any other CAD softwares , at a reasonable price to save your money initially . According to my experience I would suggest you to go for ActCAD which is equally efficient and at a reasonable price for you.If someone asks me the reason for suggesting ActCAD , they would be
      1.It is valid for lifetime
      2.Self licence transfer mechanism
      3.The converters available etc....
      You can check the trial of ActCAD for free from link given below:

      THANK YOU

      If you are looking for more cost effective software which serves the same purpose as AutoCAD, I would suggest BricsCAD. Along with all the regular commands and features of AutoCAD, it provides the user with features like LISP programming, Image attachment, PDF Underlay, Import / export of different files formats and layout creation. The system requirement for operating both the software also varies. While for AutoCAD needs latest windows platform (Windows 8 and above) and 2 GB RAM, BricsCAD can be operated on Windows 7 with 1 GB Ram, which will further help you in saving the costs
