It sure looks like parametric solid modeling is on its way out. Today Siemens PLM Solutions let the world know about their breakthough “Synchronous Technology”. Some time ago I referred to SpaceClaim 2007 as CAD 2.0 and published a white paper on it. I also predicted that other vendors will follow suit. Today Siemens PLM Solutions did exactly that.
Take a look at the video here. For a moment (in fact for many moments) I thought I was looking at SpaceClaim. This is going to be part of Solid Edge and NX and will be released in May.
Hey Autodesk, SolidWorks and the rest of the gang, what are you guys waiting for?
