I stumbled upon a great post today from Evan Yares. Evan’s piece humerously showcases the lack of 3D usage throughout the wider engineering process & team in most companies. He discusses how a new generation of 3D tools based on direct modeling is here to offer new opportunity in that void.
While CAD experts can rightly argue that the new generation programs don’t do everything that the old generation programs do, that’s not really the point is it?
Imagine that a company has 100 engineers and designers, of which only a small percentage (choose any number you want) are truly proficient using existing CAD tools. How might it affect the company’s overall product development productivity to give the rest of the engineers and designers new generation CAD tools?
