Alibre's Greg Milliken Is As Dishonest As They Come

How long is it going to be before more users / bloggers start speaking
up about how dishonest Alibre's CEO Greg Milliken is? For example all
you can read on Deelip Menezes blog it total bullshit rather than
users being allowed to state how really *** ed up Alibre really is and
how dishonest their CEO Greg Milliken is. I've lost count of all the
users who have abandoned ship because Alibre won't fix the basics that
have been broken in Alibre for so long.

A specific example of how *** ed Alibre is, is that Alibre doesn't
allow a user to create what SolidWorks calls Reference Geometry
Coordinate Systems. Mastercam has the same thing and calls them Works
Coordinate Systems or WCS's. Without this ability a CAM users is
forced to translate the geometry from it's original datum.... a big no-
no and not allowed by larger / smarter companies. Despite this FACT,
Alibre CEO Greg Milliken claims to understand what CAM users really
need. What a *** ing joke... this lying idiot couldn't machine his way
out of a paper bag and hasn't got clue one on what tools serious
machining job shops really need.

While I don't like how poorly a job SolidWorks bloggers have done on
the need for direct geometry editing tools and / or a better Feature
Manager *until* Siemens/UGS made their announcement a week ago, at
least one SolidWorks blogger has experienced exactly what kind of liar
Alibre CEO Greg Milliken really is. I've know it for years as Greg
Milliken once e-mailed me and promised the next release of Alibre
would incorporate the surfacing tools that are in the ACIS kernel
which Alibre uses. Needless to say this didn't happen and still hasn't
happened. If you haven't already check out these links:

I think its time way more users started speaking up about this kind of
crap. Greg Milliken is little more than a dishonest ex AutoCAD
salesman who lies on a frequent basis. I have no doubt that what
happened to the SolidWorks blogger I linked to above is true based on
my experiences with Alibre CEO Greg Milliken. Too bad as it doesn't
have to be this way but that's the kind of person Alibre CEO Greg
Milliken is.

My offer to post Alibre CEO Greg Milliken's e-mail to me from years
ago, where Greg Milliken states Alibre is going to make use of the
advanced surfacing options in the ACIS kernel is also open to *anyone*
who has been supportive / or even open minded in regards to what I
have posted over the years to this newsgroup. I will not ask for your
location or your phone.

Any request from the following will be refused, regardless:

Bo,
Tom Brewer
Gary Knutson
Matt Lombard
Various other assorted *** s.

Here's a better statement to bush up on Liquid Shits:

As soon as I'm asked by someone who is legit, and for sure that would
not be an *** like you, I'm going to post Alibre's CEO Greg
Milliken e-mail proving what a liar he really is.

did banqy shit itself in public again?

just sitting there in its dark little room shitting itself, while
mommy screams to turn down the TV.

it's fun to poke it and watch it scream and strike out, sort of like a
rabid rodent.

let's see what we can get it to do.

come on banqy, shit. shit for us, come on boy. curl one up, right
there in your room, right by your food bowl.

mommy won't find it for a few weeks, and by then it will be hard, she
can shovel it up with the others...

come on boy...you can do it...come on....good boy...

You don't have a clue what a kernel is and clearly not what
a clue what "Greg Milliken" *may* have written about.
Making up your own private meanings for well-known words
which actual users & experts use (because you have no clues what
they are about) ALWAYS gets YOU in deep dodo and confuses
newbies to you who (by default) assumed that you knew what
the words were about (or at least had a clue).

It shows. It shows all the time.
Your self-promotion with clueless buzzwords IS a lie.

Alibre is smart enough to use ACIS rather than Parasolid as
they want to offer a complete solution rather try and marry
surfacing routines to Parasolid.

With ACIS it's all done inside the kernel rather than outside
of it.

You might want to take note of what Autodesk, think3, VX,
etc. have had to say about trying to create surfacing
routines outside of a kernel. It obviously doesn't work
very well. You might also want to review the threads in this
newsgroup for proof of how poorly it works in SolidWorks.

Alibre tells me that they will make use of the surfacing
routines in ACIS in Alibre 8.0 due in the second quarter
of next year.

Jon,
You should probably research your facts a little better, as the one
about Parasolid not supporting surfaces is untrue. As you probably are
aware, UG uses the Parasolid kernel and has some of the best surfacing in
the industry and is unmatched by anything except for IDEAS and Catia in this
area (none of them use ACIS, and two of them use Parasolid). I have also
includes a link to a UGS PLMsolutions web page for Parasolid that states
that it does indeed have native support for surfaces.

You might also want to see if Alibre will talk with you.
The seem like very nice people to me. Always responsive
to anything I ask for.

Naturally, Alibre uses the ACIS kernel and they plan on
making Alibre a seamless, unified, hybrid modeler in the second
quarter of next year.

Since Alibre is based on ACIS, (something that Frank Carboneheads pal Timmy
Markoski insists is an inferior kernel... some of us know better. ;>)) all you
folks at Alibre need to do is implement the ACIS Advanced Surfacing Husk.
Vola.... unified, seamless, hybrid modeling.

In the mean time, other products like Alibre are going to have a much better
shot at
gaining market share because their products were never conceived like SolidWorks
was...

Consider the FACT that the person posting this uses Rhino for machine design
rather than a program like Alibre or Solidworks that is really designed for
machine design.

Spent $4000 for SolidWorks yet without checking out what $500
Alibre can do ??? Did spending the $4000 for SolidWorks make you feel better
about yourself ???
