Solid Edge with Synchronous Technology award

Designnews .com  post  a news about SEwST winning the Golden Mousetrap award

“…While the merits of history-free vs. history-based or parametric CAD systems have been debated for years, 2009 was the year vendors made huge strides in bridging the benefits of both modeling technologies in one product. Perhaps no 3-D CAD company did as much to advance the trend as Siemens PLM Software with the introduction of Synchronous Technology, its next-generation modeling approach…”

Inventor fusion or AutoCAD revisit?

My first impression, it give me the déjà vu impression. We are in a AutoCAD world, without all the icons, toolbar and functionalities… except for the multi body operation.
