SolidWorks for RP

Hi Steven,

I noticed that you might have tried SolidWorks95
for a while for your RP applications according to
your message on 16 Dec. 1995. I would like to hear
from you about the surface modeling and STL files
of SolidWorks95 for the purpose of RP. I understand
that Parasolid has a good capability for
free-form surface modeling, has SolidWorks95 taken
a full advantage of that ?

If you have experience with Pro/E, I would
appreciate it if you could also give me a short
comparison between SolidWorks95 and Pro/E in terms
of surface modeling capability and
accuracy/time/size tradeoff in STL files.

Can anyone else provide helpful information ?

Thanks a lot.
