    A little curious, since you are a design house, if you felt the need to get Solidworks there was because it was driven more by customer’s want for Solidworks deliverables, vs picking that software because it was the best choice in terms of using CAD for design?

      That’s a great question, with a 2-part answer. First, yes there was a need to meet customer requests. Second, I had used Solidworks at a customer facility some and liked several things about it. I also really liked the presentation and promises. So we dove in and bought it — THEN took several of the classes so I could understand it and really learn to use it. Call it jumping in with both feet. We knew it was not the most capable CAD software, but it seemed like enough for most. We used it on many customer projects at first. The issues highlighted are things you learn as you go.
