Is there a trial version of Unigraphics for download anywhere? Kind of like Solidworks learning edition. There are some jobs available where I'm located and trying to get my foot in the door for even an interview has proved difficult.

I'm a Solidworks (5 years) and former Catia user(3 years) so I don't feel it would take too long to get up to speed on the basics.


RE: Trial version

There is no "trial" version. If your company wants to seriously evaluate UG, contact them and they may loan you a copy for 30-60 days.

RE: Trial version

The company I currently work for uses Solidworks, and it is sufficient for our needs. However, due to company turmoil (layoffs, instability, no warm fuzzy anymore), I've decided to look else for work. One highly regarded company in my area uses UG and I want get some familarity to help get my foot in the door.

RE: Trial version


I'd try to emphasize your previous experience with other software and ability to learn quickly. Where I work now I got the position by convincing the company that I'd be able to pick up UG quickly with my Pro/E and Catia background.

It took me a few weeks to learn the basics and a few months later I was modeling an Airfoil. UG can be frustrating at times but after making some mistakes you'll be able to avoid them in the future. UG has a nice Training System called CAST Computer Assisted Self Teach that can help you become comfortable with the software.

This forum also has a lot of good postings and helpful engineers that can help you find answers to common questions. I know it helped me out when I first started learning UG.

Good Luck in your Job search.
