Edgecam ticks all your boxes.
hi guys i would like to know your opinion on what the best 3d cam software with good simulation and 5 axis capable software for inventor 2011 i have looked at hypermill, inventorcam any other suggestions and comments would be appreciated
ok i will try a demo
SolidCAM is integrated with Inventor. We use SolidCAM (admittedly with SolidWorks) and are very pleased with it.
What machine are you going to use or what machine do you have? I ue Part Modeler with Edgecam on a 5 Axis Monoblock. It does the job and is much cheaper than Hypermill. Mastercam and Visi cam are also good to look at. Good luck it's a hard decision to make..
i have inventor 2011 i don't know if edgecam will work with it and how does it compare with gibbscam or mastercam and alike
I use MasterCam X3 for 3-5 axis programming, the problem you will run into is can you get a Post Processor set up with the machine you will be using it on. The salesmen will tell you anything to get the sale, then will tell you that it will cost you 5 to 6 thousand more to get a post processor to be able to use the G code the Cam software will produce. What ever system you decide on, make sure that you get the post processer CONFIGURED FOR YOUR MACHINE CONTROL THAT YOU HAVE to do a DEMO before you spend the money for the
software. Hope this helps
