Sorry about my earlier outburst. I do feel a little childish about getting emotional over a CAD program. Still, when I think about about how they've restructured the whole program for things that are so full of bugs that they can't be used for serious work (read the part tree and constraints), I find it hard to believe that they couldn't have incorporated the basic functionality for automating the process of sheet metal development. It might not handle every possible situation, i.e., embossing, watertight bends, bends greater than 180 degrees, etc (where the unbend tool currently fails anyway), but at least mark the bendlines on the part! All other 3D mechanical design software (Solidworks, SolidEdge, Inventor, Kubotek, CoCreate, and Alibre) has this capability, and has had it since the early days of its development. I guess IMSI is still looking at AutoCAD as the benchmark.
Add to this the fact that shortly after the release of V16, an IMSI representative (I believe it was Dave Taylor) strongly hinted that this would be a priorty for the next release. IMSI almost never says anything about what they might be working on, so a hint in this direction was very unusual. It would have been better if "almost never" had been "never", because my hopes would not have been raised.
I really needed this capability for my day to day work. I guess I had better not put away my calculator.
