"As a Manager, I do not need sophisticated software. I have been looking for a simple CAD solution that is good enough for me to open my customers’ 3D files, participate in design review with my team and do some 3D part validation for costing purposes. To be able to do all these, it’s as good as buying a full 3D CAD software. Until I started to use ZW3D, to my surprise, it’s so easy to pick up and it can do more what I have expected! Best of all, the low investment cost!"
