Just a 'ice breaker' thread. The typical--"how long have you used VX", "general CAD experience", "what industry are you in"--introduce yourself kind of stuff. Don't leave me hangin' here alone guys and gals...

Maccam, welcome to VX! I think you will find the software to be a lot friendlier than Pro-E. Will take you a while to get used to it, but you will never look back (and probably never want to use any other CAD system).

Yacht design and construction for the last five years. I just started using VX, having used Solidworks in the past. I continue to use Multisurf to generate and analyze hull shapes, but I am liking VX capabilities for producing complicated deck surfaces which can become tedious in Multisurf (still a program that I love).

15 years CAD. AutoCAD and Cadkey in the beginning. Some Solid Works, Inventor, surfcam along the way.

Started using VX "classic" in 1992 (Varimetrix version 2.5, I think). Switched to VX vision in 1998.

Much rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, CNC programming

Tool/Mold/Fixture design, mostly in cast and formed metal. More recently designing video game machines and other consumer products.

Also used VX for programming CMM's and inspection data analysis.
