In fact, a PCB layout package has a lot in common with a subset of a
geometric modeling package capabilities.

It, of course, needs the "other" capabilities geometric modelers don't
need. This electrically aware control layer is the piece of code that
transforms the thin geometric modeler into a pcb layout program in my
opinion.

I can see (abstracting myself from the emotional opinions from time to
time) a valid point in John's approach. 

Regards, Felipe.

It sounds like your ideal PCB package is in fact a generic 3D modeller
like Solidworks, Solidedge, Spaceclaim or something of that ilk.

You can model anything with that (including material properties). I
