Dave, I am looking forward to joining you on this call.
I think for everybody who is planning on joining it is important to point out that we don't want you to think that we (that is the royal "we" and really means Dave) are going to try to teach you why NX 9 drafting is great or anything like that.
When I look at feedback from things like Beta it shows that there are a lot of positive things in NX 9 drafting, but, as with everything that we do, I think we accept that there are some things we need to adjust, and as you can imagine, we have some planned changes that you will see when NX 10 comes out, and some things we may choose not to change (for a variety of reasons), and I have no doubt you'll explain to us some new ones we may have to think about.
I'm hoping this is works out as a constructive meeting, because it's the first time we've tried anything like this by opening up an invite on a forum like this one, and personally, I think it could be something we could do more often.

I, too, truly hope this is a constructive meeting. It sounds like the users have several case studies for you, already. I would challenge everyone to spend a few minutes to put a list together of their top 3 concerns and how they would like to see the new UI work for them.
I agree having an open forum is a bit rsiky and needs to be managed.
If there is enough interest here from the users you might be able to leverage and re-establish the Techincal Committees inside of PLM World. After all, that is the reason the group exists.
I recall running monthly meetings (sometimes bi-weekly) with the Siemens Product Managers, users and sometimes development to help design/develop the UI and functional requirements for many different features in NX. Looking back the tech committee did a large amount of work on the feature instance/patterning functions as well as 3-face blend and even the redesign of the hole feature (that one goes back almost 10 years). We worked on a lot of the #1 user voted ERs and many of the Top 25 (CIP programs). Speaking of that, the PMs and SIG chairs should be getting those lists down to 25 right about now! ;-)
We have a passionate group of users here. Utlilize them/us and utilize/revitalize the PLM World Techncial Committees and SIGs! It's a win-win for everyone. If you need help with that- I'm here to help too!
Thankful for all that we can accomplish together,

Not a user like the others, but I work helpdesk in Australia & New Zealand as there is no GTAC for our customers. We have seen questions raised about the new interface by our customers.
