All of my design work (past initial sketches) is done in SolidWorks. I have some experience in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire, but SolidWorks is preferred.
Once designs are completed I can generate machine drawings. I have been to multiple machine shops so I know how to best design components to be machined easily and cost-effective.
If needed, these 3d models can be used in advanced software packages to make more complex 3d models and animations. My favorite tool for this is Modo 401. It allows for the easy import of my Solidworks models and creates high quality renders.
