SolidWorks or ProE?
Hello group, this topic may have been posted before but my firm is looking
to either get SolidWorks or ProE to do our design work.
Our main work is machine design which consist of 1000 parts or more.
Can anyone give any advice on which would be the best for us?
Thanks in advance

What are your opinions on the best SW workstation for very complex
parts? Pretend money is no object. I'm looking for something that SW
can utilize. Not a 4 core workstation that SW can only utilize at 25%.
Off the shelf would be fine, custom built would be fine as well.
Thanks in advance!
If you do not want a four core workstation, then you do not want the
best system that is out today for SolidWorks.
The new Core i7 and Xeon Nehalem core cpu's are the fastest for SW.
They are four core processors with hyper-threading.

Is there a way to program solidworks to print out all the drawings in

manually. Can anyone please advise?
SW task scheduler should do what you are after.

Thank you Brian,
The solution works. Fantastic. Thanks a ton.

I found that SW task scheduler works extremely slow. How long did it
take to convert

OK, so I contrived the acronym to spell REACTS. The "A" could be

But it's a need which has come up several times, and does not quite

This is to cover cases where programs are to be entered into a

Invalid page fault - A program uses memory (RAM) to store data. For example,
when you load a document into Microsoft Word, large parts of the file you
are editing take up space in RAM. As the program needs memory, it requests
blocks of memory of specific sizes from the operating system. The program
remembers the location of each block it allocates using a "pointer." If the
program tries to write data to a location beyond the end of a memory block,
or if the program gets confused and tries to access a non-existent block of
memory using an invalid poi...Compuware Competitive Analysis #2
