    Does anyone use solidworks?

    Is it the best for designing curvy shapes for milling?

    Why can I only find a price for the academic version?

    Don't like this request a quote style of selling, sounds like they plan to screw me until the pips squeak. How much did you pay?

    Much ta

    I use Solid Edge which is similar to Solid Works but written by 2 completely different software companys.

    Solid Edge cost about 4000 and about 1100 a year for maintenance (updates etc).

    The academic licence's are usually far cheaper and should be fine for what you are doing.

    John,
    Just had a look at the offer and only US & Canada.

  5. The Alibre online store accepted my order and took my money and I'm in Australia.

    Perhaps they think that Oz is another US state or part of Canada ...

    Yes I had a problem to start with as I had the free registered version.
    Spoke to Alibe and they told me to remove all cookies and try again and itw worked for me .
    Ironically the first time I got directed to a UK reseller and I didn't go further.
    later I went back, deleted cookies and got it but the sale on the debit card went to the same UK reseller and was listed at $99

    Checked the bank this morning but nothing has come out yet.
    Program downloaded and up and running, just need to watch some tutorials now.

    What are Alibre selling for $99? Is it worth having?

    Full 3D/2D CAD package. You can download a full version that works for 30 days if you want to try it out.
    There's also a CAM package for it, from $1000 to $4000 depending on options.

    Several users over on cnczone.com rate it highly.
