Hi, I thought I would ask this forum for any ideas....
I have a project which requires the use of a 4th axis to mill somthing thats non-circular and non symetrical. (http://www.tuatahiaxes.com/pics/089handles.jpg )
I have been using BobCAD in the past however the limitation of BobCAD is that it can only produce 4th Axis G-code on a circular path.
Does anyone have any recomendations for CAM software that will be usefull for this?
I am running my first part using DeskProto right now. Relatively low cost, and very easy to use. Here's a link to the progress so far, it is being machined RIGHT NOW!
Will also be buying SprutCAM to support 4th and 5th axis machining later this year... MUCH more expensive (but not all that bad for what you get) and VERY powerful... Looking forward to using some of its unique features!
