I use Wildfire 1mostly forsheetmetal. I am considering moving to SolidWorks.


Does anyone out there have experience with both? If so, which do you prefer.

Basically, pro/e has more features and options in sheet metal module than solidworks and smarter!


Using Solidworks for sheet metal is much easier and faster than pro/e

I have to say that the Pro/E provides more flexibility and have found that although Solidworks is fast, I am frequently modifying parts because it can't handle the geometry. Also, in Wildfire 2.0 the SM user interface was updated so I don't see any major difference on that front.
