Mech Eng Design/CAD Software

  1. Sep 6, 2010 #1
    I'm currently on a Mech Eng undergrad course going into my final year. I have used a number of drawing and simulation packages.

    My question is, in the industrial world what is the most used piece of CAD software? I am not so good with Pro/E and so so with AutoCAD. We are learning Solidworks this year. Out of the 3 named which would you say is the most widely used in industry?

    I've always been more of a pencil paper kind of student :P

    I depends on the industry. For MechE's, Pro/E and Solidworks are probably the most used in general (along with Unigraphics and CATIA, especially in aerospace companies).
