Steve, I believe you're right, CAD can be hard, but like Larry pointed out
it is a constantly evolving tool which is slowly becoming more user-friendly
as times goes by. We just had a preview of Catia version 5 and it appears
to be much more user-friendly and intuitive than version 4, although there a
lack of functionality in some areas, especially in manufacturing
applications such as NC programming. Except for the outrageous pricing, I
believe Catia version 5 could appeal to a much broader class of users, not
just hard-core engineering applications.

Nice quote Larry, at times I would have liked to use a four inch diameter
high pressure stream of water!!
