"Muy buen aopcion"

What do you like best?

Este vanguardista paquete de paquetes CAD es muy intuitivo y todos funcionan en conjunto. Abra datos CAD no nativos y colabore con casi cualquier otro software CAD estándar.

Muy buen soporte para productos de configuración de variantes y mejores prototipos

What do you dislike?

Requiere una gran cantidad de macros para automatizar operaciones simples

No se puede cambiar el modo de selección arrastrando el mouse de izquierda a derecha y de derecha a izquierda.

No se pueden bloquear las piezas: ¡este es un gran problema que podría causar un gran problema! el usuario puede mover accidentalmente la pieza en el conjunto (cuando trabaja en el nivel superior) solo por un poquito y nunca atraparla. y si tratas de no trabajar en el nivel superior, ¡buena suerte al tirar de las dimensiones entre las diferentes subpartes!

"not happy with Drafting"

What do you like best?

Some of the parametric capabilities and some of the features like ISO view. Part idea is not terrible.

What do you dislike?

Requires a lot of macros to automatize simple operations

Unable to switch selection mode by dragging mouse from left to right and from right to left.

Unable to lock the parts - this is huge issue that might cause a big problem! user can accidentally move the part in the assembly (when working at the top level) just for tiny bit and never catch it! and if you try not to work at the top level then good luck with pulling dimensions between different sub parts!

It uses its own macro language instead of normal VB or C or whatever the industry standard is - I think it is a con.

In summary we all almost hate Drafting here and will be switching to something else, especially considering that there are many other 2D CAD packages given away for free these days and PTC still charges a lot of money for their crappy unfinished product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Think twice - there are free 2D CAD packages available that could do same things!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

tool design and manufacturing

What Product and Machine Design solution do you use?

This cutting-edge of CAD package suite is very intuitive and all works together. Open non-native CAD data and collaborate with almost any other standard CAD software.

New product design and development.

If there are drawings that were created in many different CAD environments, and you prefer to use one platform for your company to work with those drawings, then use this software.

Fitting this software to exact specifications may be a challenge at times.

"Fully Feature 3D modeling software suite"

What do you like best?

Used in conjunction with Windchill, PTC handles all of our 3d modeling needs.

What do you dislike?

There is a steep learning curve to be able to fully learn the software

Recommendations to others considering the product

This program can do everything if you are willing to dive in and learn to use it by an extended trial and error proccess

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All of our applications (modeling, file management, database) work well together as they are all part of the PTC suite
