Pros: I really like that the interface is super accessible to the user, very simple to understand for the engineering professionals, greatly simplifying complex problems.

Cons: they continually update the license by disabling previous versions. Also in my country the user support is very poor.

Overall: it has allowed me to anticipate behaviors of a process before possible unplanned changes of the process variables.

Very useful design software for engineers and design university student or enthusiasts.

Pros: Functionality of the software and how you can recreat alot of models and practicals on it.
Design engineers will love this software.

Cons: Hard to use sometimes. Needed to be taught by a professional.
If you make a mistake it's very hard to reset everything. Other than that it's very useful software

Good for Fluent modeling

Pros: I like how it easily integrates with ANSYS, making simulations easier and smoother. Sometimes I prefer it over any other CAD software.

Cons: The power of design modeler only goes so much, sometimes I prefer to import CAD using other software.

Great if you're using Ansys as your main CAD

Pros: For 2D works, it's great. For 3D it can be effective as well - assuming you understand the Ansys layout and your main CAD program is also Ansys. If you plan on rounding out your use with FEA - then this is the path you want to take.

Cons: It feels very archaic. The tool buttons look old and are low quality. FEA tools can be frustrating if it bugs out and stops 2 hours into the calculations. There's some massaging you have to do if you want the flow to be smooth.

Pros: I really like it's different tools provide for different or say specific application during 3d modeling. It can handle large files easily.

Cons: The thing that I least like it's user interface which is little bit complex if compare to its competitor products like solidworks.

Overall: Really recommend to the experienced user.

Pros: This module form part of a extensive tools library that can be accessed within the workbench interface. This faciltates the modification of any component without the need to leave the program.
The software has a familiar interface to other design programs, which facilitates its use and understanding.

Cons: Although the program is constantly updated, its graphical interface remains old.
The number of compatible formats and tools available in this software does not compare with those offered by other design programs on the market.

Overall: This software allows me to develop all the work within a single interface, without the need to leave it and use another program for some procedure. In addition, because it is linked to other modules, it allows the modification of data and update of results without problems.

Pros: I like it's different tools provide for different set of Designs which are very helpful and time saving.

Cons: It's user interface is not so much good. Pretty difficult for new user. Various other competitors design software like solidworks has very simple and easy to use interface.

Overall: I design various products on this and I am very satisfied and really recommend.

Pros: This software is very easy for 2-dimensional environment because the tool is complete and has several drawing option

Cons: It should have an easier command line with instructions for beginners. People who use this software need commands to draw

Overall: Excellent software for two dimensions

Pros: The design modeler work directly with the CAD model for the ANSYS analysis. It has enough feature to manipulate your model.

Cons: The features are not friendly use. It require great deal of getting use to the software to manipulate the model.

Overall: Work with model for FEA

I have used it for about a year for stress analysis and finite element analysis.

Pros: Ability to study surface forces, ability to mesh easily, ability to improve the quality of meshes and look at dynamic stresses

Cons: The model shows up error messages on meshing only after a 3 - 4 hour run. Not in the initial stages of the run

Comments: You probably need to be an engineer first and get the right training but otherwise, ANSYS's many features and professional presentation have made it the gold standard in engineering simulation.
