First off, my intent here is to gather opinions of past SW to Wildfire
converts. I'm not saying one software is better than the other. I'd just
like to hear comments on peoples experiences.
I've been a SolidWorks user for about 6 years and REALLY know the software
well. I have an opportunity to work for a company that is using Pro-E
Wildfire. I'm really interested in the job but one of the things holding me
back is not knowing Wildfire. I have a demo of Wildfire 2 and have been
going through tutorials for about a week. I have to say that compared to SW
Wildfire just seems so non user friendly. I thought this was just a factor
of being new to the software but the more I use it the more I find it's not
a comfortable interface (for me anyway). I hate to say I wouldn't take the
position based on my demo experience with Wildfire but I'm also don't want
to go to work everyday with a love-hate relationship with the software
(which is what I'm developing, more hate than love) So I would like to hear
comments from others who have made the switch. How long did it take to get
comfortable with the software? Are you sorry you made the switch? Are you
glad you made the switch? Anything you can tell me about your experience
would be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
