Hi,

Can you elaborate more on what you want to analyze using FE Method?
This to a great extent will determine what tool to use.
The current genre of FEM tools are addressed towards novice user quickly
pickup and start using the tool , rather than spend more time on understanding
the nuances of FEM ,ANSYS DesignSpace is one such example

I can suggest more specifically if I know what you are trying to solve

Regards,
Chandra
