Hey RJC!  

I absolutely love your project because I am involved in CAD Engineering.  I'm taking a solidedge class next semester.  Do you like SolidEdge?  I work with AutoDesk Inventor and Creo 2.0 mostly atm.

Yes I like solidedge. very easy to use. It is pretty much like solidworks but its less popular. I am not too familiar in using autodesk CAD software mainly because when I was still a student we only use solidedge for our CAD.
