SolidWorks proved to be the most user-friendly product of those evaluated, especially with its superb Windows style, logic, and functionality. We also found it to have more capabilities than Mechnical Desktop, which we also evaluated. The parametric design capabilities of SolidWorks have proven invaluable, especially when we need to evaluate many design iterations.
