3D to 3D Never Looked So Good

is Now the right time to consider switching CAD tools?

3D CAD tools have taken on a key role in enabling companies to remain competitive in today’s challenging global economy. Choosing the right tools not only helps speed product development but also enables designers and engineers to focus on what’s important—designing world-class innovative products.

GoEngineer has helped hundreds of companies successfully transition to SOLIDWORKS from Autodesk, PTC and more. GoEngineer can help you transfer systems effectively, offering step-by-step support during and after the transition. 

Key Questions We Can Help You Address:
1. What are the hidden costs of renting CAD software?
2. Does changing CAD systems make business sense?
3. What about my existing data?
4. Can SOLIDWORKS do the job?

"We chose SOLIDWORKS after researching all of the major CAD software. We looked at ProE, SOLIDWORKS, Autocad, and Space Claim. The final decision was easy and based on the following three factors:

1. Cost per license
2. Ease of use. SOLIDWORKS is taught at the local vocational schools. Finding skilled employees is not a problem with SOLIDWORKS.
3. Ability to share editable files with suppliers and customers in a format they could open. Even suppliers who use different CAD/CAM software can open SOLIDWORKS files.”
