"Excellent CAD Software"

Commentaires: Switching a product line for concept to manufacturing was so easy. New designs could not be easier. I can not wait to try Alibre out for Automation Design projects in the near future.

Avantages: Extremely easy to learn. Other than proprietary snag of Dimension Drawings of other similar CAD software, switching is easy, simply import the 3D object and re-create great dimension drawings for manufacturing and incorporate the changes/dimensions/GD&T with ease. From then on, updates and/or revisions of a part for manufacturing are so simple, it is amazing. I literally had a lot of fun learning Alibre Design Professional.

Inconvénients: Recreating the dimensional drawing for manufacturing was the only thing that I could find missing in converting from other similar software's. This is simply a proprietary matter period.

"Best bang for the buck"

Commentaires: We took a product that was purely conceptual in nature and created a design and working prototype that was used in obtaining a patent. Alibre was the key software platform we used in doing the work.

Avantages: This software is perfect for a small design team or individual use to create products from scratch. We used this software in the design and patenting of a roadside barrier system to reduce injuries and fatalities, especially in cases where motorcyclists were involved. The software was inexpensive and was very easy to learn. Granted, there was some ramp-up to gain proficiency, but it took place very quickly. Also helpful during this process was Alibre's customer support team. They were easy to get hold of, and were able to work with us when we got stuck along the way. I would highly recommend Alibre for design work, especially work that needs to be done in order to get a product or a design patented.

Inconvénients: Some features were a little cumbersome, but with customer support a workaround was nearly always available.

"I guess some CAD software is better than no CAD software"

Commentaires: My overall experience is that yes, this is functional CAD software, but you will be at least three times faster and ten times less frustrated if you use a more reputable program like AutoCad or Solidworks.

Avantages: It is similar enough to Solid Works, so it was not too hard to learn on the fly. There is a metal simulation portion of the software that is very useful for bending and shaping metal components with decent realism.

Inconvénients: The commands are not too hard to learn, but the software is extremely clunky, not responsive, and does not give much of an hint if there is a mistake in the drawing (overlapping line, enclosed loop, etc.). The program crashes regularly even running a on a brand new Thinkpad laptop with up to date specs. Lines have trouble "snapping" to points even when that option is turned on. And my largest gripe are that the user manual is pathetic, and their website is even worse when it comes to understanding featuresbor troubleshooting.

"Building 3D models from the scratch is simple"

Commentaires: We use it to make 3D models and at times 2D drawings with this tool. We are happy with the tool.

Avantages: Drag-and-drop feature: click and bring it to the platform
Organize Mesh Data with ease
Amazing customer support.

Inconvénients: Learning curve is really high. Once you master in it, you get to do multiple things in short amount of time. Apart from the learning curve, there is no disadvantages with the tool.

"My many years with alibre"

Commentaires: I was able to jump into te 3d designing world at a very reasonable price. I was able to make my customers ideas a reality.

Avantages: I bought this product years ago before it was sold to geomagic. The customer support was always there when needed, which was no often at all due to the softwares excellent functionality. I loved how easy it was to import cad drawings in comparison to some other cad softwares on the market.

Inconvénients: I had no negative in my dealings with alibre.

"Affordable, and very useful"

Commentaires: Designing vibration control hardware to fit within a tight structure would be very difficult without 3d modeling, and this package costs a small fraction of what we write have paid for other popular purchases
Packages.

Avantages: Creating 3d models of simple shapes is easy to learn. Alibre will create 2d drawings of the designs as well.

Inconvénients: Relaxing parts in an assembly didn't always behave as expected, requiring a lot of rebuilding of constraints.

"Simple, does the job, but not for long-term or large-scale use"

Commentaires: Alibre has successfully provided my workplace with a CAD package that allows us to provide suppliers with everything they need to get parts made right, as well as sufficient capability for ongoing design & development work. Software bugs cause a lot of frustration but you get what you pay for here!

Avantages: Easy to pick up coming from SolidWorks etc. Does all of the simple things you need a CAD package to do.

Inconvénients: Bugs, crashes, failures, freezes! When working on complex parts/assemblies, Alibre will not do the job reliably. Problems come intermittently at nearly every step of the way. Working full-time on this software is very frustrating and requires workarounds only a competent user can manage.
