Pro Mechanica vs Ansys (structural)


New member
To all the FEA engineers in the forum who use both pro/mechanica and ansys., how does Pro/Mechanica's structural accuracy results compare to ansys. I know that both programs use different approach to compute the stresses (one by increasing the order of polynomials and the other by increasing the mesh number). I've always used Pro/Mechanica integrated and found it a bit limited compared to the stand alone version..

to get to the point, which one do you use the most and why ?
