I can't share the file because of confidentiality agreements. It's a very simple part, even though it takes three setups--one setup is as simple as a straight cut. BC could do it in 2d, but that was time a consuming task.Originally Posted by lakeside
OneCNC did it with no training in less time than an experienced user that went through the training class could do it in BobCad--and in full 3d with no editing.
If this is your mentality, then that explains why BobCAD is so bad. It's highly illogical and buggy. I've written windows code before, and would be embarrased to put my name on this program. I can't imagine a program so stupid that you have to click on a microscopic arrow to select direction of cuts--and if you accidentally click another microscopic arrow, you screw the whole thing up. (And just the fact that it allows you to click multiple arrows to screw it up is mind-boggling.) This type of mediocrity is what keeps BobCAD users as mere users, and not raving fans.If you think it can't be done fast your the issue not Bobcad, maybe your machinist smoked a fat one before the training
And btw, my machinist doesn't smoke. I've known him since '89, and he's very bright and a stand-up guy. I was even frustrated with him when he wanted me to consider OneCNC--but once he showed me how fast the setups were, even with no training, then I ok'd it. Some programs are just written with logical steps. Some aren't.
