What is better Solid Works or Pro

  1. Nov 19, 2012 #1
    I am about to start a project on the effectiveness of conformal cooling in injection molding, where i will be designing the cooling channels for a mold. However, i do not know which software will be better for designing the cooling channels and performing the finite element and heat transfer analysis.
    Do i pick Solid Works or ProE
    Any help or opinions will be much appreciated

    Solidworks would work fine. It is also easy to migrate a Soildworks model into MoldFlow for analysis.
