From a SolidWorks webinar on hardware and performance:
"Parasolid boolean operations are multi-threaded, such as creating a thousand holes in a plate with hole wizard." (paraphrase from the lecture, see page 10 of attached document)
I'm familiar with boolean operations in computer science but I'm not seeing how that relates to something like creating features. Can anyone shed some light?
This may tie in, though I am not sure how, exactly: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boolean_operations_on_polygons
