Transitioning to a new CAD system is always a challenge, but the payoffs can be huge. If you're going to change CAD, you're going to have to adjust your team as well. Sometimes it comes down to individual learning curves, but our team can help your team. We've transitioned teams using SolidWorks, Creo Pro/e, and Catia successfully. Let's look briefly at the challenge levels for each of these:
Going from SolidWorks to NX:
Usually this is easiest because the workflows are so similar. Dassault Systems (SolidWorks) licenses its main parasolid kernel from Siemens PLM, owner of the kernel. The main core of SolidWorks is the same kernel as with NX.
Going from Creo to NX:
The workflows are different, but our experience working with companies has shown us how to communicate & translate quirks & features from Creo into NX.
Going from Catia to NX:
Same goes for Catia, it's a different workflow, but again there's always little usability things we've encountered to smooth the way.
