Main differences are in interface (a lot of work redesigning the front
end look of the program), coupled with inprovements to rounds and
chamfer capability. The program runs slower (benchmarking about 20%
slower) due to being bigger, and some users report not thinking much of
the 'windows style' ergonomics. Many changes arer poorly documented, if
at all, and not very intuitive to use.
Overall, if you can use 2001, and can take 3 days of poor productivity
whilst you search the menu mapper for the new location of commands,
you'll pick it up. If you're thinking 'do we need this? and aren't
obliged to change by customer or supplier relationships, put your money
back in your pocket.
Dear mmsubbu at gmail dot com,
One would think that, given your need to practice writing in the English
language and your newness to solid modelling software, that you might have
taken this opportunity to talk, write, express yourself, in this completely
open, free wheeling, unsupervised environment. This seems the perfect place
to get chatty, to be evocative, effusive and loquacious... in other words,
to introduce yourself to this group of your peers (not of any realm) in
science, in practice and in the belief that these two, with the support of
society, can solve hitherto unapproachable problems. Please, friend, tell us
who you are and what you are thinking. Tell us WHY you pose this problem;
AND tell us whether the 'problem' be real or hypothetical!!! What is YOUR
stake in this difference. Or, as they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
