I just build and delivered a 12 stop Geneva mechanism machine Friday 19 December 2014. I have been a Solid edge user since 1999 - forget the propaganda. I never could get the Geneva mechanism to work properly with other objects in Solid Edge. Solid Edge gets complicated when you have several variables interacting simultaneously.
I'm sure a graduate student who is not on the clock could figure out how to make honey and milk with solid edge; I simply don't have the time to caress my multi-thousand dollar software to work for me.
