"Design Intent" is no longer of concern where you said you were wasting all that time and trouble trying to determine customer design intent before you changed their model.
Here I agree there is a big problem that isn't being addressed. This
problem often results in the design intent / parametric history being
tossed in the trashcan. Solid modeling companies are not providing the
tools necessary to keep the design intent / parametrics in place and
customers are not putting the pressure on companies like SolidWorks to
come up with far better tools to visualize design intent or make it so
it doesn't matter like IronCAD seems to have done.
So NOW Design Intent is no longer a concern?
What exactly is your engineering department doing while you say YOU
are modifying customer supplied solids?
Design Intent no longer a concern?
When you import a "Dumb Solid" into Synch-Tech what happened to design
You know where importing strips the solid of it's constraints (design
So Design Intent is no longer a concern?
Why are you a self proclaimed CNC Machinist/Programmer asked to modify
customer supplied models, what exactly is your engineering department
doing while you are hacking and whacking customer files?

You don't post with SmartCAM, LOL, but real users do and they can
download about 100 SmartCAM postprocessor's for free here
I'm committed to working with HSMWorks to doing just that. Shouldn't
be too hard because their head of US operations and I see things in
almost the exact same way and because HSMWorks is interested in what I
have to say and wants to work with me.
