Quote from: DarrellW on Wednesday,October 16, 2013, 18:09:22 I use SolidWorks, but have used most of the mainstream 3D CAD software for many years starting from Cadds5; I liked Catia and ProE but the cost of them for a small company is prohibitive; I';ve not used Inventor but was put off Autodesk stuff by 3D AutoCad, anyone who has used it will know what I mean!
Quote from: spiff on Tuesday,May 27, 2014, 18:01:08 I used Cadds 4x (unix) back in the early 90';s. Was I bit of a over kill for what we were doing. Also used their PD package which run on a pc.How did you find Cadds 5?
Quote from: DarrellW on Tuesday,May 27, 2014, 18:04:31 I think i made a booboo, it was before PTC took over so it was most likely Cadds 4, it was in the late 80';s early 90';s when I used it; at the time it was very good but looking back now SolidWorks is just so much easier to use for what I use it for.I remember quite vividly seeing a ProE demo showing David Brown Tractors using ProE for crankshaft design and being able to drive the design from a spreadsheet, it was amazing stuff at the time!
Quote from: spiff on Wednesday,May 28, 2014, 05:53:45 one thing I do regret is down grading from a Sun Vision Sparc station to a pc
Quote from: DarrellW on Wednesday,May 28, 2014, 07:12:55 100% with you there, Sun workstations were the mutts, did you run onunix or solaris? IIt';s what gave me my interest/fascination with linux, them being so alike. That aside risc processors were pretty revolutionary at the time and quite rightly so!
Quote from: spiff on Thursday,May 29, 2014, 05:49:34 damn trying to recall what it was - I think it was solaris. found my cadds4x and PD5 manuals but not the Sparc station manuals.

Quote from: DarrellW on Thursday,May 29, 2014, 07:18:40 We ran Unix because a lot of the business side of the company I was working for at the time was on Unix, tbh I had a go on a Solaris machine when I did the training and could tell the difference, I suppose it was because the Solaris OS was what their workstations were designed to run on.
