Autodesk's solid modeling kernel is home grown?

Not exactly. So far as I know, it's ACIS with a few changes. Hard to say how many changes, though. Unlike Spatial and UGS, Autodesk does not document the native file format for their kernel.

I have yet to use a modeler that makes use of the Parasolid kernel, besides Unigraphics, where the surface and solid tools feel truly integrated.

I don't believe, and have not for some time, that if a company wants to build a hybrid modeler that using Parasolid is the way to go.

What I would like to know more about is the CATIA CAA kernel.

Perhaps SpaceClaim will use it for their new product?
