    Has anyone aptly tried to define 'Hi End Software'

    I define 'Hi-End CAD tools' as

    1 Software Sold Modular. ie. if Tesla needs added functionality that they didn't originally know they needed they can purchase that module or application. Solidworks CNC shop must take an IGES file from their customer to get CNC done. It can take 20+ hrs to write tool paths for the part. When the customer makes a change the next day the 20+ hrs must be redone due to the new IGES file. In Creo the OLD tool path simply updates like a part in assembly mode. Creo Catia and NX have an application for Advanced Assembly / Manufacture etc for example while the mid range modelers do not. ie. Solidworks, Inventor etc...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7X-F4nyIFg < one video that explains CNC tool path updates

    2. Handles memory differently. Pro/ENGINEER & Creo handle resident memory. Soldiworks Inventor are like Microsft word. If the file is out of memory you lost the part.

    while I totally understand the point you are making with this, the reality is that many development firms sub out the machining of their tools to any number of suppliers and not all of those suppliers use PTC products or are integrated into the designing firm's CAD database so the updates may not necessarily be seamless even if each firm is using CREO. While the design process as envisioned by PTC is great for a fully integrated and large company, lots of smaller companies can't integrate in the same manner.

    Im doing a series of 90 min presentations comparing both for various ID departments. I wonder if I should make those videos available after?

    Hello Bart,
    I think you should make those videos available.
    I am pretty sure that this will surprise many ID managers.

    Solidworks is definitely much better than creo.As for industry use, Solidworks is becoming more widely used than creo because creo is too expensive and is more cumbersome when it comes to doing simple modeling. Solidworks also has better FEA and dynamic simulation capabilities than creo does.

    I spent the past three months updating the Creo version of Design-engine's Advanced assembly class and in so doing Im updating what we offer for the Solidworks assembly class concurrent. Can I tell you guys first Im impressed w/ the advancement Solidworks has made. Top down design is still a bit lacking and im preparing a speed test to be sure of both top down & assemblies over 2500 components. Solidworks has done quite a a bit to handle larger assemblies and are even given a different definition of large assemblies. ie. sw has many of the same tools as we have in Creo.
