    2020, haven't installed 21 yet.

    I don't like how the smart dimensioning is finicky about switching modes (length or position for example) depending on where the cursor is and I don't like having...
  2. Yes, that is most likely the primary driver for...

    Yes, that is most likely the primary driver for synchronous modelling, just that that is not the environment that I work in.

    Maybe something has changed since I used it (I was using NX 10 IIRC so...
  3. I do use synchronous fairly frequently (it's...

    I do use synchronous fairly frequently (it's called direct editing in SW). Interestingly it works quite similarly in NX and SW in that they are parametric features that go into the history tree and...

    And that breaks a chip? What material?

    When I was playing with LNMX I was pushing close to 1mm/r before it would break a chip at 4mm DOC in 16" 4340V. Anything less and it was just ribbons and...
  5. By default a planar sketch will be extruded...

    By default a planar sketch will be extruded normal to that plane in NX, although you can override it.

    It's more how you define the plane in the first place. There are just many more methods...

    The search function here is worthless, just use google, eg. - "search terms site://practicalmachinist.com"
  7. Effectively, everything in NX is fundamentally...

    Effectively, everything in NX is fundamentally defined as along or around a vector, and it gives you MANY tools to define that vector.

    In solidworks, everything is fundamentally defined as normal...

    This has been discussed ad nauseum, most recently here: Left or Right han tooling

    Have a read through that.

    How much torque does an SL30 have?

    LNMX at 18" is going to need a LOT of grunt to break a chip...
  10. Siemens is a huge entity, and you can't compare...

    Siemens is a huge entity, and you can't compare their electrical/power gen products (which I assume you are talking about) to their design products. Different divisions, practically different...

    I got to use NX for a year.

    Well, I demoed it. Amongst others.

    Demos are not useful to me. I am much more interested in the advanced functionality and workflows of the software that you just don't uncover playing with a demo...
  13. I really don't know why people keep vaunting...

    I really don't know why people keep vaunting solidworks as the gold standard of 3D cad.

    It's not, not in any way shape or form.

    I want NX so badly, but switching everyone here off of solidworks...

    Not strictly true. The taper and the gauge line diameter are the same. The length from the pull stud shoulder to the gauge line is not the same.

    Frequently you see people saying that they are...

    From the website:

    "The SRW-AMESTRA GmbH with headquarter in Pforzheim was founded on the 29th May, 1989 by Raimund Wolf. Almost at the same time the industrial enterprise AMESTRA was bought from...

    Last time I needed something, I logged in to the customer portal (MyDMGMori), and clicked on the Online Shop, then when it failed to find my part number I used the contact form at the bottom of the...

    FWIW, the Beaver is a fairly high quality mill, probably not all that common in the States, but many of them over here once upon a time.

    Far superior to a BP. If it's actually in good order, the...

    There is some cognitive dissonance in your post.

    Solvespace is "nearly perfect for me" but FreeCAD is "hot garbage"???

    Solvespace is functional for constraints based sketching and motion...

    Well, Aloris (and clones) are about my least favourite style of QC toolpost so...

    I'd take a Chinese Multifix clone over a genuine Aloris any day of the week.

    Bison make Dickson clones in...

    OZ Collets are more commonly known as DIN 6388 or 4xx E.

    They were common metalworking collets, although they have been thoroughly marginalised by ER, presumably because of cost, because they are...

    Certainly it's true that SE is not an autocad clone.

    It follows the same basic workflow of all 3D cad systems, model/draw your solids/shapes in the Model View, create the prints in the Drawing...

    I'm not trying to pick a fight, but that honestly reads like you made assumptions about how it should work and didn't bother to learn how it actually works.
