I think the two ideas are compatible. HSMW, short on cash, shops itself to DS SW, but finds that there is no place for them other than the dead end track of SolidWorks. Faced with fading away or selling out, which would you pick?

Nice to see that Joe Anand of Mecsoft, one of the very few truly honest people in the CADCAM business, back up what I know be the truth about why HSMWorks was really sold.

HSMWorks can't hide the real truth from those who have years of experience with the CAM industry and who are honest.

It's very unfortunate that the sale of HSMWorks is being used by those who have an agenda to further their cause against Dassault/SolidWorks. While I believe their cause against Dassault/SolidWorks is legitimate, and is in many ways well founded, it doesn't mean the real reason HSMWorks was sold should be covered up/ignored.

Lots of discussion on HSMWorks sale can be found on the CADCAM Technology Leaders group on LinkedIn. The membership of that group speaks volumes about what people in the CADCAM industry think about it.

Thank you for giving Joe Anand's blog post on HSMWorks the attention it truly deserves. There is a reason I'm so loyal to WorldCAD Access and to upFronteZine.
