History-based, parametric, history-free, direct, explicit, synchronous, dynamic, instant... Over the last few years CAD companies have introduced many new terms as they have announced new product capabilities. Most significant are the capabilities related to direct geometry interaction and manipulation. The industry is becoming more familiar with the concept of history-free modeling (direct modeling, direct editing). 2009 - The Year of … Confusion?
Posted by Deelip Menezes Others Saturday, December 19th, 2009 A PTC Partner newsletter alerted me to the news that PTC has formed separate business units for its product lines.

So You Want To Make CAD Software - Siemens PLM Software Blog Jump to Comments by Mark Burhop | 19 Jan 2010 I had a talk with one of our software developers the other day asking what it is like to work on CAD software. You might think this was over coffee in the break room but really, we were separated by several thousand miles. For Solid Edge Simulation , we have developers contributing from all over the world (Alabama, Pennsylvania, Ohio in the US and England and India outside the US.) and this is just a small product.

I dislike the press release section, "Out of the Inbox," where I have to read dozens of press releases and in a few seconds figure out (a) what it is about and (b) whether it is worth writing up. I dislike it so much that [I subsequently dropped the section] from upFront.eZine.
