"We used the Concepts Unlimited beta release as part of our F-35 project,"
said George Irving, Aeronautical Engineer Senior Staff for Lockheed. "So far
we've had incredible results, especially in regard to translation. Its
translation capabilities are so efficient and accurate that word has spread
through the company-we're now receiving problem files from other departments
to be translated through Concepts Unlimited! We are so impressed that we are
adding more seats shortly."
Concepts offers a free demo that can be dowloaded at:
Concepts sells for $995
Concepts blows the freaking doors off a low level solution like Rhino !
Spatial Corp, creater of ACIS is a Dassault Systèmes company. ;>)
How many posts has firstname.lastname@example.org made to usenet ?
According to Google that number would be zero.
You try Concepts for yourself and then come back here and post why
it does not blow to doors off Rhino as I have said it does
or post why this is not an excellent example of how much
better rounded ACIS is than Parasolid.
Next troll.... :>)
Just answer the question, Jon. How long you been using it and what
have you designed with it??
BTW, I've been playing with it and it is lame, imho. It reminds me a
lot of Vellum3D and it is DOG SLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll say it again, IT IS DOG SLOW!!!!

Do you think that might be because Vellum Cobalt was written
by Tim Olson as well ?
"IT IS DOG SLOW!!!!"
Lockheed likes it. They really, really like it. :>)
Is it better that SolidWorks fails faster compared to
Concepts which may not be quite as fast but doesn't
fail ? :>)
In regards to your complaints, how about taking a page out
of my book and posting all the specific things you don't
like about Concepts just like I do with SolidWorks. Do
you need me to again list all the issues I have with
SolidWorks ? ;>)
I note that you feel that Concepts maybe *just a little bit
to slow*. What operations in Concepts do you find *just a
little bit to slow*, Paul ? :>)
I use to have a Basset Hound. He was *just a little bit to
slow* but ya know I really loved that dog.... probably a
lot like you have always loved Anne Brown. :>)
I think many people will like Concepts and find it
significantly easier to use in many situations that require
surfacing compared to Rhino or SolidWorks.
BTW, Paul how did you first hear of Concepts...
be honest now. :>)
I will not answer any of you question because you are NOT a user and I
would only be feeding a demo testing troll.
But I will say, no shit sherlock on who created the program and any demo
testing troll can tell it is slow.
The clueless bs continues.....
You NEVER used this program to design ANYTHING. At least Paul posted a link
to his design.
Got any press releases on the new broom you've been using at work? You
know... the one that blows the doors off of blah blah blah.

He just copies what others have said and posts ads he steals
I doubt he knows what one word in three actually means.
It's no wonder so much of it sounds so stupid ... he gets
confused, not knowing what the actual subject of discussion was.
But he's happily take all the credit in the world for any new release
of anything, as if he almost used it himself .... and look up the name
of a salesman to drop as if he'd just had something anal to do ....
