Yeah. No way I could compete with THAT. That's why my models are always so simple. =)
Well, each type of software has its strengths and weaknesses. Solidworks was designed specifically for the types of models that engineers and industrial designers come up with, so creating machine models is much faster in SW than it would be in Modo. On the other hand, Solidworks is TERRIBLE for creating sculpted organic forms, which is where Modo excels. For example, I managed to create this model of a soldier ant in SW, but it took me much, much longer than someone proficient in Modo would require, and the final results in Modo wouldn't look as mechanical.
