Do you like Synchronous Technology?

i have used Cad for many years, and was quite comfortable to use "parametric modeling" to make models. Parametric modeling is good (over 10 years old)because if one dimension changes, other dependent dimensions will change automatically. However, we need to use a logical way to build a model, keep the tree simple to understand, otherwise it is very painful to make changes. "Parent-and-child" relations often make us difficult to move.

last year, NX launched a new design approach, "Synchronous Technology". We no longer need to understand how the model was built before making changes. What we do is what we think (Synchronized!)

Do you like this approach? let's have an open discussion.

Below are my favourite benefits from this approach.
