The new interface in ZW3D 2012 is coming soon, and the Ribbons interface looks nice. (shown as the attachment)

Massive improvement on the Ribbon user interface! Excellent work!

I hope the annoying popup dialog boxes that block the model are gone as well.

As far as CAM is concerned I suggest you take a long hard look at this:

New Video For ZW3D 2012

Still a ton of work needs to be done. All those dialog boxes that pop up have got to go.

The integration of MachineWorks solid cut part simulation seems lacking compared to other CAM. My bet is that keeping constant track of a stock model still doesn't exist.
See link at bottom for what state of the art CAM looks like and does: Full virtual machine simulation bound up front to a CNC machine definition so that it can be used to refine
toolpaths as they are created not at the end of the process, drag and drop exiting wireframe backplotted toolpath to other parts of the model and have it adopt to the new
geometry condition, etc.
