Comment 2D isn't real CAD (Score 1) 126

For years I too have wished for a proper CAD system that could run on Mac hardware. However, at this point I'd settle for being able to teach everyone out there that 2D CAD is a pale, shallow, crippled, painful excuse for CAD as compared to any mainstream parametric 3D CAD system.

OK, I'll concede that there is CAD for Macs, but it's a glorified electric drawing board, not a useful engineering tool. THAT is what I want to run on Macs... The day that Pro/ENGINEER, or SolidWorks, Alibre Design, or any of those ilk (and quality) can run on a Mac, THEN I will be one happy design engineer. Until then, there is no CAD for Macs.
