is ugnx considered a "hybrid" modeler?

Reason I ask is you have the history of the model, but you can also just make anything anywhere right in the middle of the history. You have the
option to make things associative or not. I was just wondering if that's what's meant by a hybrid modeler?

It's not like Joe 788 can help it any longer. He's in debt up to his eyeballs / leveraged out to the max and bankruptcy is imminent. With this kind of staggering debt load and a moronic business plan to start with, is it any wonder he's turned into a drooling moron.

Moronic business plan? Can you elaborate on that? Care to explain what you think my "business plan" is? I can tell you one thing, it's definitely not: "Buy a bunch of obsolete junk and try to sell it on newsgroups." You've got that one covered already.

Yes. It's been one a looong time. Back in the "old days" if one didn't make every single tiny bit of data "associative" they were considered a hack. Those days are (thankfully) long gone. The system is more than stable to handle multiple types of data as well as multiple solids within the same part file (something many other systems didn't like).

It depended on who you worked for and what system they had so while what Bill Triffet writes above is bullshit it pales in comparison to the claims that a loser and a liar like Cliffy Huprich has made and posted on for years... that full associativity is a must.
Recently someone posted how nice the Hurco conversational programming is and once again Cliffy Huprich showed he has zero recent (the last 25 years) machining job shop experience by knocking a system that does nothing but save time and continues to get more and more innovative... I've posted about the benefits of Hurco Winmax for *many years*.
It never fails to amaze me how many idiots the machine shop business seems to attract. Luckily more and more of these idiots are being forced out, retire or are being driven into bankruptcy everyday so they can post on Usenet and show how little they know.
Those days are (thankfully) long gone. The system is more than

Mastercam X4 still can't handle a disjoint solids and I don't believe a piece of crap like Gibbscam Solid Surfacer can either. I'd bet that Mastercam X5 when it comes out will solve this problem.

Here's how it works, you get a job somewhere and make whatever they have work. NX5 is the best system Iv'e ever ran, but if i was running mastercam X3 I'd be saying the same damn thing. You zoom in on it's faults. Try zooming in on it's strengths, no matter what it is. When your a baseball player, and you get traded to a shitty team, it's just temporary. that team has it's own strengths that need exploited and its own weaknesses that need overcome. Be the ball player. Whatever you have is the best, even if it's mastercam 9.1! When people say it won't do something...be a "toolmaker" and make it work. That's what a "toolmaker" is, no matter what the problem, a toolmaker can make the tools needed out of whatever he has at his disposal. Try acting like mcguyver instead of henny youngman.
You should be afraid to proclaim what a cam system "cant do". Someone knows how, you can bet your uber high paycheck on it.
The glass isnt half full or half empty, it was designed twice as big as it should of been. Too many emotions in your reviews. There's 6 variables in the lottery and your never gonna win. There's thousands in a cam system?
The next time you read how something cant be done in mastercam...find out how it can be done? Pretend you were born a generation or two ago.

Jon, do you think anybody, anywhere, actually thinks you know more about ANYTHING, than Bill? Seriously?
Hmm, the guy who was at top the machining department of a near billion dollar company, with a million square feet of shop space, 1000+ FMS pallets, and now programs simultaneous 5 axis parts with UG........ Or the nomadic CNC operator who works in a faux "machine shop" consisting of a few worn out tool dropping verticals, who has never actually used UG, but has only watched videos on it?
I'll pick the former.

I ran into an old (Korea) Jarhead the other day, has a couple Haas VMC's in his garage that he runs when he wants to.
We traded salutations, his years, mine, DI's all the usual, then he asked me;
"Last guy off the bus get his ass kicked?"
My reply was "Aye Top, and good too."
There used to be a lot more to it than the little yellow feet.
How many people remember "the board of education"?

I know you're in the mold world now but... it's a new module coming for NX for us turbo machine guys. Rough and finish with split blade options. Hopefully I will be testing it soon. It's much like Delcams' dedicated multi-blade impeller ($25k) add-on module from what I've seen. Should take a big bite out of my programming time. : )

We have a micron rotary 5 axis. I'd love to see that thing machining a propellor at a few hundred inches per minute.

Our two best machines are the Hermle C30's. The trouble is at times we've booked too much work for those machines so I've had to move to the much more limited (and slower) older machines. :(

Oh boy... a couple big 5ax Sunstrand Omni mills (retrofits), a big old SNK horz 5ax, couple old Cinci 5ax (acromatic 950's), old Rigid 2 spindle 5ax blisk machines, a few old Bosto 5ax single spindles, and a few Bosto 4ax - 4 spindles, old Mori 3ax mill, and now... 3 brand new OLD Rigid 3 spindle 5ax machines. Except for the big ones, all the other machines are really designed for blade, blisk, and impeller machining. All our machines except the newer Hermles are 15+ years old.
