Simplest, easiest to use direct modeler with compatibility to all other mainstream CAD tools
Kommentare: The most 'non obvious' benefit was the ability to import a CAD file from multiple sources and save back out as a JT file in different JT standard release formats. This is FAR simpler than using many of the various translation tools we have to translate from CAD to a neutral format to JT.
Vorteile: SpaceClaim is so easy to use, even a lowly manager with no recent design experience can utilize it to produce rudimentary designs in record time. Direct modeling, and the ability to import from a wide range of CAD tools, as well as export in many of those same formats, makes reuse of existing designs a snap. With four basic sets of commands, almost anything you can imagine can be layed out in at least a preliminary state for your 'real' designers to complete using the tool of their choice. Or better yet, they can use SpaceClaim to finish the design in an extremely short time.
Nachteile: The interface and command set is so simple, I always feel like I am missing something. If you can't think in 3D, this my not be the tool for you. Drafting is NOT a strong suit, because SpaceClaim is all about design.

Direct Editing 3D Software
Kommentare: This software allows you to import virtually any CAD file into your CAD system, whether it was created in your CAD program or not. You can make changes, create drawings and export the revised file in the native format you need. Having the capability to modify any CAD file is huge! Can you imagine the time savings? Don't think of it as a replacement CAD software that you have to learn, think of it as an added tool which allows quick and accurate modifications to CAD files. We use this software in our service bureau because of the time efficiency for creating STL files for 3D printing. You can't beat the time savings of 50%!
Vorteile: Ease of use
Nachteile: Can't really think of any cons on the software itself. The only thing I would say is that you have to purchase the software license along with additional modules which allow for various native file formats to be exported.

Vorteile: Direct Modeling, Easy of use. Part programming and automation
Nachteile: There is not fundamental cons. Some functionalities need improvents like drawting etc

Kommentare: Overall, the software is good but I prefer other software with better assembly features.
Vorteile: I like that this software has features that allows for easy deletion of model parts. With other modeling software I have used in the past, problems arise when a component is changed or deleted. This software does not have this issue because it is not as strict. It is user friendly and easy to learn.
Nachteile: I don't like certain aspects of this software, the mating in the assembly section is sub-par. I also do not like that you have to undo a bunch of steps to change a component of the part being modeled.

Great modeler product in the market
Kommentare: Trying to create various CAD models and using them for simulation purposes
Vorteile: The fact that anyone with little or no experience can use this product and the ease with which models can be created and simualted. A picture can be imported and created into a CAD model which is greatly useful
Nachteile: THe fact that the interface is still ebing developed and each release enhances it. Also the number of turorials available are quire less given that its new.

Easy to Use - Great Functionality
Kommentare: I use SpaceClaim to design everything from simple plastic parts to highly complex mechanical systems. I still consider myself an intermediate user as there is much functionality that I have yet to utilize.
Vorteile: I use SpaceClaim because it has a simple user interface and performs almost every function you may need in a Mechanical 3D CAD tool. The learning curve on this software is very short when compared to SolidWorks.
Nachteile: Some things are a little difficult to do in SpaceClaim. For example editing of curved surfaces and other none uniform surfaces can be tricky.

I've used CAD software since the very first CAD software became available for personal computers.
Kommentare: The main benefit is the freedom to create without having to think too much about the technicalities of using the software.
Vorteile: Extremely intuitive! I started using the software without learning anything about the software. If you already know CAD software you can just start using it without looking at the manual! It's that easy to use! For most of the commands, it has a kind of built-in artificial intelligence that knows what you want it to do without you telling it. It can import just about anything and edit it just like it was created natively. You can do 3D edits in 2D section view, which is extremely useful when working on a complicated design. It can do things with faceted data that no other software can do, which makes it extremely useful for doing anything related to 3D printing, reverse engineering or working with 3D scan data.

Easy to learn and use quickly to produce quality results
Kommentare: It is quick and simple to put out production drawings and files for CAMing
Vorteile: The software is simple. It is easy to quickly create accurate 3D designs and create drawings for production use. It is direct edit so making changes to imported data is quick and easy.
Nachteile: For some functionality you need to buy third-party addons. The drawings can take a bit of work to get looking professional but once you have the settings correct it is not too bad.

Great CAD software for the price
Vorteile: Easy to use and intuitive interface, features many of the same tools that other top CAD software has. Able to provide quite a bit of extra funcitonality in the form of add ons and packages.
Nachteile: Occasionally has trouble when handling large asssemblies. Software's way of handling imported parts/constantly resourcing them can be tedious.
