Letters To The Editor
Would sure be interesting to read a review article comparing SolidWorks and Pro/E - PTC on the ropes right now. The new sheet metal functionality in Wildfire 2.0 has been around in SolidWorks for over a year SolidWorks not handling large assemblies as well as PTC that kind of stuff

Barry brings up a good point. It's really time that we take a good comparative look at SolidWorks (2004 or 2005) and Pro/Engineer Wildfire 2.0, and for good measure, Autodesk Inventor 8. We get requests for this type of comparison quite often, so maybe we should go ahead and just do it!
