Default What is the best FEA software?
Posts: n/a
To add to my portfolio I would like to know what is the best FEA or CAE package. I have seen ANSYS but it is much over-valued for what it is. The geometry building is not good and they only present simple boxes or rod for their FEA cases

What is your experience

There is no "best" FEA code. There are the big 3-Ansys, Nastran, Abaqus and a host of smaller ones and if they solve your particular problems then they are the best for you. Each has certain strengths and all overlap quite a bit.
