It's 3D+2D and also covers parts that are not strictly
CAD/CAM but that are quite interconnected to the CAD.
However it's not a mechanical CAD (it's for the shoe
industry) and the problems to be solved are completely
different.

The geometry part in particular is simpler from a
mathematical point of view, but contains complications
that are not present in a mechanical CAD (everything is
parametrized to the size of the shoe, and in somewhat
complex ways). Also another big difference is the
intended audience, from which you can expect a much
lower experise level about computers: the user interface
plays a *central* role.
