Cloud CAD, thoughts?

I constantly check on the progress on cloud CAD development like onshape and F360. So far i found that onshape is the closest to SW workflow, it still lacks the surfacing cappabilites but I'm sure it will get there looking at the rate of the updates they have done. I also found that their montly pri...

modo for industrial designer?

Hi all,
I have been looking at modo and see some designer use it in their workflow and it seem more practical compared to SW.
My question to any industrial designer using modo, is it limited to visualization? what else it can benefit in our process?

Cheers mate!
