hey suddenly all the CAD developing teams are moving to the same User Interface system and the same technology "Explicit Designing", Hey who initiated it? Please let me know the market rates of these cool softwares, some are mentioning NX to be cheaper, well they have many competitors and a new name SPACECLAIM. hope someone can really tell me the truth about it, everyone is claiming that they are the pioneers of this technology.

More than that unless the Nx5 pricing has changed greatly. There are a lot of modules in UG and no one would need them all...Automotive stuff, Cam, FEA, wiring, etc.

Anil:

$22,000, I believe -- similar to Pro/E and Catia with bells + whistles.

Anil

Have any Idea how much UGS NX5 cost with all the modules?

Jason

Dave, a lot for your bucks? They charge an arm and a leg. An entry level UG bundle doesn't do everything Solidworks does yet costs twice as much.

Overall, UG does more...but you are really going to pay for it. Luckily, most people don't need everything UG does....so why pay for it.

Hey Andy, fair comment about Works beleiving they are dominant - but who's technology is it built on? Why, UGS's.
Yes, NX5 is pricey, but you get a lot for your bucks.

andy clarke

remember guys, the dominant player in the smb market is solidworks, the ease of use and pricing structure cannot be matched, leave the price where it is on ug, small businesses see ug as a big player at big money anyway and that will not change in the next few years ,they should stick to what they know!
