Could someone advise me what solid modeling software application could best be used in connection with modeling and/or reverse engineering developed from underlying imported images of mechanical parts. including race car bodies and especially tube frames. I also need to be able to do the same with fabricated metal store fixtures. I’m contemplating the purchase of Rhino, solidThinking or maybe even Solidworks. I also have access to formZ but I am just in the tutorial stage and it seems like a steep learning curve and if I need to spend a lot of learning time I want to spend it on the appropriate software. I have both fast PC’s and Macs however my 3d experience to date is with Architectural stuff using ArchiCAD.
Thanks in advance
