Teamcenter 2007
Used NX6 along with Teamcenter 2007 exclusively at TruMatch of Depuy.
I started using AutoCAD in high school. I used it steadily till 1999. I still have an old copy, that I use from time to time.  
I used Pro-E while working for Manchester Tool and Die, and BKB Manufacturing. I like Pro-E quite a bit. I went through traing for it and Pro-Intralink.
I used Solidworks on my own long before CMM. I used it on a part time basis with CMM, and then used it on a full time basis with Utilimaster. I also use it at home for my own projects. I like Solidworks for it's interopability with other software. It's flexiblity makes it my overall favorite CAD program.
Unigraphics NX3, NX5, NX6
Started using NX3 when I started with Morgan Olson. We switched to NX5 mid 2008. I had not used Unigraphics before Morgan Olson. Use NX6 along with Teamcenter 2007 exclusively at TruMatch of Depuy.
