<< An engineer uses his creative spirit to solve problems. An artist uses
his creative spirit just because
he feels like it.

Xerox, Hewlett Packard, etc. do not [design] and build equipment to "enable
business" or "so people can make their own $1 greeting cards", etc. They
design, build, and sell new equipment to make MONEY. The bottom line purpose
of any [survivable] business is to make money [read PROFIT]. The product(s)
they choose to design, build and sell are not chosen "because they feel like
it". They are chosen because their development will make PROFITS for the
CAD tools are developed for the exact same reason. When it becomes
PROFITABLE for the CAD program developer(s) to develop CAD programs for the
artist, then artistic based CAD systems will become readily available.
