Good work. Thanks, Mark!

I believe it Mark. I truly do but they don't. :( This is what you are going to be fighting against.

I honestly think the best thing to do is get NX CAM to run directly inside of Solid Edge ST's user interface. This is where you should focus your effort. Major adoption problem with NX CAM is the user interface. Give it Solid Edge ST's user interface and you've got a powerful package that most others would have a very difficult time competing with.

You need to get this done and do whatever it takes to get it done.

Let me say right now that its a level playing field. If more CAM companies want to partner with Solid Edge (and I hope they do) I'll be glad to help them do it.

The problem is and continues to be fully integrated CAM for Solid Edge and this problem has only gotten worse in the last two years.

Mark Burhop should be focused on getting Siemens NX CAM developers to port NX CAM to the Solid Edge ST user interface because the 3rd party CAM vendors that I've spoken with are all afraid that they will end up competing with NX CAM if they port to Solid Edge ST. Further, they would rather focus on SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor because they have a much bigger market share than Solid Edge ST does.

It's going to take a lot of work to convince Tony Affuso that NX CAM needs to be ported to the Solid Edge ST user interface. I wish Mark lots of luck with that because he's going to need it! I don't think you could pay me enough money to try and accomplish this next to impossible job that Mark is now tasked with. :(
