I'm merely a student rather than a seasoned professional, but depending on what you're trying to do Bob I may be able to help once exams are out of the way (mid May).
I've used Abaqus for FEA and Ansys Fluent for CFD and done pillow plate forming simulations in Ansys Mechanical.
What is it you're trying to do?
The LISA software looks a little limited but it might be okay.
One thing to consider is I have access to student versions of the above software, albeit for academic use only.
