This is the first time I hear about Unigraphics NX, I searched for it on google and what I found was the SIEMENS software webpages, so I guess Unigraphics is developed by SIEMENS… but I didnt find anywhere where they say this software will run on a MAC… does it run on a MAC? Or the apple design team have like a special version of UGS NX for their macs??
I think the assumption has the flaw of thinking that they are solely running MACs. I would…they know were they shine and were they don’t…CAD is one of the later only due to software compatability. I would be willing to guess they have unigraphics on a Sun or SGI workstation.
Well, to tell you the truth I was watching the video of the WWDC07 and Steve Jobs were talking about the new LEOPARD and everything, and when he was talking about the new networking feature on the LEOPARD there were 4 computers on the network:
MacBook Pro and
Windows PC (in the attic)…
I know is silly but I just got courious about many things. Also I think is interesting to know if they do use their MACs for CAD/CAM (solidworks, etc…) and for 3D Concepts Modelings (rhino. etc…).
I spoke in depth with an apple engineer recently, they work mostly in UG (unigraphics) and the ID guys are in Alias, plenty of Adobe around as well I assume. Very interesting to hear the details of the pecking order over there. IDers rule the place even more than you might imagine (under the all seeing I of Jobs, of course)
