Anyone have any experience with Solidworks 2006. Is it as good as it claims to be? Hard to learn? Easy to learn? Haven't installed it yet, just looking for opinions. Got any? 8) :lol: :lol:

I've work with SolidWorks for some 7 years now. Self taught so I know anybody can learn it. Dealer in the northeast is solidvision.com. It sells for about 4k. Am still in the process of modeling my tear.

Ok Madjack I'll give it a try. Here is an overall of what I've got so far.
(larger view of my avatar). I'll upload some more to my album when I find some time. I already have changes as I just got some old Ford wire wheels with white wall tires I have to model and add.

The tension between what is good enough and what is beyond that creates the space for character to become our work.
