I am an apprentice and my boss asked me to look into cam software (hes going to send me for training). We know about mastercam, gibbscam and a program called ESPRIT, but we're just trying to find out what would be the best software for our needs.
As I mentioned in the title, we need software that can handle 4-5 axis mills as well as swiss turning centers with live tooling, multiple spindles etc.
We know gibbscam has the MTM plugin for what we need, as well as that ESPRIT offers something that would work for us - we dont know if mastercam offers the ability to handle multiple spindles and live tooling.
We're located in Toronto and part of choosing a program includes being able to get proper training on the program at a school or courses from the actual software developer - there is a mastercam school right around our place of business.
Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide,
