I started using 3dx with 2014x, I had been exposed to V6 for a bit but never really work with it. The GUI is the really big change for the user, in 14x we start to see what it will become: instead of the user going to click the function icon on the side of the screen or in menu, DS is trying to bring the function to the user as soon as you select something. 14X is not fully optimized in that sens, but I have access to 16X and I could see much more function in the contextual menu after selection. The 3d modeler is pretty much the same with new features as every release bring some. 3DX will have some features that V5 equivalent level won't have. The other big thing with 3DX (new since v6 I guess) is that it does need a database to work with, no more file base. I do not save CATPart or CATDrawing in a folder anymore, I save in the database. I do see big improvement with this: link management and file sharing. all is nice and clean now. we are still struggling a bit with link management in 14x but I am sure 16x is already doing better. For anyone that does not want to manage a database locally, DS is making 3DX available on the cloud. The data is saved in the database somewhere on the cloud, it work pretty good as speed test from home show me that my ISP is the bottleneck (60 down/10 up) I wish I could test with GB connection but the price of that here is not for me.

NX for example has improved in many areas last couple of revisions. also creo is relatively user friendly (don't know about surfaces though), although it has its quirks (legacy stuff dating back 15 years ago).
