Hi I am about to take delivery of my new CNC Lathe from Gunhead and I am trying to decide on which CAM software package to get for turning.
I currently use Vectric Aspire for most of my CAD/CAM on my CNC Router and CNC Mill and have recently purchased Alibre Design for more sophiticated CAD/CAM work. The CAM that comes with Alibre is an older version of Mecsofts Visual Mill.
The three packages I am currently looking at are Dolphins Partmaster turn, Mecsoft Visual Turn and Sprutcam turn.
My budget can at a push run up to $1200 (SprutCAM).
As I am starting out on CNC turning I would be grateful on any objective input/ opinions and any comparisons between the three packages from people who have experience with them.
