What is this *with the ACAD interface!!!!
I chose Solidworks specifically because Autodesk products are repulsive
both on a practical and a conceptual level.
Layers, Blocks for symbols, COMMAND LINE INTERFACE!!!! What the hell
??!! Are we gonna have to futz with pen mapping & paper space in the
This is definitely a step in the WRONG direction. ACAD folks will learn
SWX quickly without meeting them half-way. It will have to happen,
because those who aren't into production solids are being eaten up by
folks who are. Just be patient.
So Solidworks, if you're listening, please don't spork up an otherwise
beautiful (if buggy) design environment. I can live with SWX crashing
2-3 times a day, and the video card (that you guys reccommended) puking
& forcing a shutdown every 10 minutes. But I can't live with a
compromised design environment. I'll go to SolidEdge in a heartbeat if
things are gonna go in this direction.
What's everybody else think? (Serious users only, not mgmt types or
"application engineers", etc.)
