Default Gambit - which CAD to use
Posts: n/a
Howdy! I'm trying to model a small business jet. It was suggested to me to use a CAD software besides GAMBIT (as I have found it's not the best). I was wondering what y'all would suggest. I am familiar with Inventor and I-DEAS. Which 3rd party CAD package will be easiest to impost into Gambit (doesn't have to be I-DEAS or Inventor, I have all summer to do this)?

Yes GAMBIT is not a CAD package and doesnt proport to be so. It is purely a mesh generation tool. CAD packages have better booleans and other operations. SolidWorks is an easy to get to grips with tool. Otherwise look at Rhino or ProE.

I like Solidworks too. And I think AutoCAD is also a good one for it's maneuverability.
