Pros: 1. Easy to learn

2. Designer with basic designing knowledge can grasp the features of software quickly

3. Assembly of CAD models is easier and convenient as compared to other softwares

4. Very fast software which helps in quicker designing of models.

Cons: 1.3D to 2D converter is moderate with few features missing in comparison with other softwares of this caliber.

2.Supported file formats are also no great in comparison with other softwares

3. User interface with menus are a little too cramped up and completely user friendly

Overall: As a freelancer I have used Solid edge for sheet metal designing and the features are very impressive and helpful. It allowed me to design any given model in no time. Recommended for designs with less designing and simple sheet metal designs.

Pros: Okay so just to say, this is for the ST3 Version I used to had. Not the new up to date version I now have, ST9. ST3's strong point was definitely it's ability to help our manufacturing shop with sheet metal work. I could make a complicated sheet metal part with good accuracy. With sheet metal factors are always causing problems, this software excells in that area.

Cons: Okay so, when I used the software, the thing that absolutely really bugged me the worst when I was creating an assembly in the "ordered environment" all my features and assembles were based off my parent sketch. As you know, things changed in designs. Well when I change/update my sketch, my assembly would either not change with it, or more commonly, it would just blow up. This would cause me to seriously have to update it manually, hours of work. This happened with large assemblies. (12 or more parts)

Overall: Just being honest with ST3 version, there was just to many bugs. It can't process to many features or large assemblies. This caused so much lagging. I once waited 10 minutes just to turn a DFT file into a pdf because I wanted color. I shouldn't have to choose between color and time. Just my opinion. I wouldn't be to proud of using this software year.

Pros: Having the choice between direct modeling and ordered is perfect. This is a robust CAD tool with many built-in advantages with their standard license such as: FEA, data management, reverse engineering, generative design and advanced rendering with KeyShot

Cons: Eventually, I would love this program to be in the cloud. I think that's where it's all going in the future.

Pros: As for my experience with solid edge over 6 months, I have found this software was easy to use for drawing 3D models.

I have seen this software during the early age of its development and I am very sure now it has been improved lot better with additional features

Cons: May be need extra training to know the features
