    Ah, that's beyond what I'm doing mostly, but I agree that the bits I have done have been hard going! It doesn't help that most of the responses on the NX forum are from CAD administrators that have...

    That sounds like something I can live with, I'm just waiting for my non-commercial licence to be sorted out and then I'll report back here how close it is to NX. I don't even need it to be that...

    I know, that's what is worrying me a bit - can I go back to potatoes after the salmon ? It's just painful dealing with the UK VAR who doesn't seem interested in dealing with anyone who isn't Rolls...

    Solid Edge

    They have over 200M shares and are worth $37B, that volume was probably the traded volume today.
