Thankie. Any of the kernels in popular use today, properly implemented, are
capable enough. What's missing is application specific goemetry creation
functions. Otherwise, if we are safe in the assumption that it's out of
Solidworks league, we'd have to assume the same of UG and we all know that's not
Are you saying ImpactXoft has them?
ImpactXoft is a very interesting tool, but it takes a very different
approach to CAD and provides a whole new set of strengths and weaknesses.
For certain tasks, ImpactXoft is very capable. In contrast, it also
introduced a whole new class of problems that SolidWorks, Pro/E, SolidEdge,
UG, etc. do not have.
If it is all about the kernel how do you explain UG? Same kernel as Solidworks.
A million is peanuts. How long will you keep a team of highly specialized PhD
mathemeticians and programmers around for that?
As yet no one has demonstrated any superiorities.
That's a pretty simple part. Non-organic, no higher order functions or geometry
involved. Should take between four and eight hours to model once the goemetry
is understood. That's not asking a lot of someone that wants to make a sale, is
it? There should be one in every developers gallery. If you run across one let
Now I'm really dissappointed. Please. Tell me you aren't just another one
who's sole experience with 3D applications is the equivalent of building Leggo
assemblies that hangs out in user groups looking for marks. Scratch ImpactXoft
that uses Catia's kernel. Ching-Ching-No-Sale. I'll stop around again in a
couple of years to check on progress.
I hear Lego engineers make some pretty good $$$ lol. Lego uses UGS NX.
Have you tried calling the companies that make/design the screws and
ask them what CAD software they use?
BTW, I use SolidWorks, but have looked at ImpactXoft (15% owned by
Dassault) as a less expensive way to work natively with automotive OEMs
that use Catia.
turnip truck j> Very easily:
Know what a circular reference is?
Still nothing to do with corn.
No need to ask. It's obvious. You asked? Did you understand the answers?
Why would Tim trash all that experience and expertise. Autodesk should have
snagged him but, being as clueless and dishonest as you dropped the ASM scam on
their customers. You thought that was a good idea, didn't you? Yeah, yeah,
Parasolid doesn't do everything ACIS does. That's why ACIS is a better choice
for entry level and niche market applications but that's all it will ever be.
You will never see a UG built over ACIS. Turnip.
Anybody have any turnip and corn recipes?
