E CAD Basics


New member
Dear All:

I am relatively new to Pro Engineer and need some help with some basic stuff. I am trying to keep our electrical and mechanical departments on the same page and would like to convince the electricals to go with E-Cad instead of OrCAD. In light of this, I have the following questions:

How do I access ECAD and do something simple to show its capability?

Are ECAD and OrCAD comparable products?

What are the benefits/pitfalls of each?

Any help at all would be appreciated!!!!
