Looks like I'm the first poster to this new sub-forum?
Anyway, based on a tip that somebody else gave me, I've downloaded the demo version of this and have been testing it for the past day or so. So far, so good. I am primarily interested in cutting 2 1/2 and 3d molds and this works very well. It cuts along the curves and not just in the back-and-forth fashion that I didn't want.
I'll post more as I keep learning.
Oh, a really nice thing about this is that the demo is time-limited, but not crippled. I have about ten CAM demos running on my PC and most are not only time-limited, but crippled - some won't even output any gcode to try on my mill or in a simulator. Last night I cut a test with this that had 5,500 lines of code and didn't seem to have any problem (took a while, but it was only a test and I know that I am pretty new to all of this).
