Pros: The best part of this package is that it is a combo. You can combine mechanical design modules with electrical schematics and PCB autorouting. Ultimately, the whole experience goes towards machining where you can us integrated SolidCAM.

Cons: There is not well integration between Solidworks and Altium. For schematics, Solidworks essentially uses the engine of Altium but if you make schematics with more than 1000 parts in Altium, it becomes challenging to import all the footprints in SolidWorks Schematics. I would suggest to start directly in Solidworks instead of importing Altium files.

Overall: I have been quite satisfied mainly because it contains a free flow from concept to machining. But of course the whole package is alot more expensive than individual software like Eagle, etc.

Pros: I like the SQL backend that allows for very customizable reporting and data validation. The ability to batch import and modify data using excel sheets is essential.

Cons: It is obvious that Dassault bought this software and threw the Solidworks coat of paint on top. This software is not on par with Solidworks Mechanical. There are so many missing basic features, such as the ability to center an object between two points - I have to center attributes within symbols by placing two diagonals. The UI is terrible, all the buttons I use in my workflow are spread across 3 or 4 tabs, so none are within easy reach. This software gets the job done, but it is not a fun process.

Pros: SolidWorks Electrical Schematics is a very precise and reliable program in the given area.

Cons: The only disadvantage of this program is that it requires high knowledge of matter, so it is not a pity for beginners.
