The most important design software is the one you customer uses. If you want an internship in Frace you better speak French. If you want to work at Harley Davidson or Kohler is would help if you spoke their language.

Maybe a better way to phrase the question would be what software offers the designer the best experience. or what software aids your thinking process or workflow best. Modo is cool stuff then. Your still going to have to remodel in solidworks if your end deliverable is in solidworks. If you don't the engineers will try to capture your design intent and that is often the weak link in your process.

Adding to this, OneNote... very handy to have a page for each project rather than trying to rely on physical sketchbook (e.g. if I need to flip back and find a Pantone code from half a year ago) and images are a lot easier to include than Word.

Love that MM included the Snipping Tool, I use the hell out of that as well. When combined with cut-and-paste into Outlook its probably the


A coworker showed me Greenshot (freeware) and I have been plugging it after using Snipping Tool for months. http://getgreenshot.org/
Basically just as easy but allows more markup, text, multiple instances running, snipping of a preset area, etc.
