  • Industrial Design: Is all industrial design software the same?
    Alias used to be the one real choice for industrial-design software. Today there are many. Besides Alias ($25,000), good packages include Rhino ($895), ICEM ($2,300 and up), NX (a lot, depending on what bundle you pick), and even SolidWorks ($3,995). So besides price, how do you decide? The only
