Where did you get a trial copy of Solidwors?????


I don't think they have a trail version. You can download some of their veiwers and such but not much else.

NiteTimes, I use Solidworks every day. It is fairly easy to learn and very user freindly as well. There are fundamentals such as basic three dimensional thinking that is needed to work any 3-D program, but it comes pretty fast once you get started.
I haven't loaded 2006 yet but the past ten years have shown great progress in the software. Good CPU speed, memory and video card helps the program perform better.
I built my teardrop in solidworks and it helped me think things through.

:thumbsup:
Good luck,

Raul, I found a good deal on TurboCad that people might be interested in.
http://store.yahoo.com/cadandgraphics/tcad11.html :o

It is a great way to help design a TD. This is a small price to pay for development. Who knows what else it can be used for.

I might just buy a copy for myself. My Solidworks license is for my work computer.

Good luck :thumbsup:

Kurt

Thank you very much, I already have a TurboCAD License 8) , but I use more CorelDraw, AutoCAD, MasterCAM, ArtCAM and Rhino.

But TurboCAD is an excellent software and far less expensive.
