    Default Anyone use MC Mill/Turn?

    Getting a new lathe by the end of the month with YC and a Subspindle. I currently use Bobcad for both my CAD and CAM both mill and lathe. Bobcad has a Mill/Turn upgrade option and that would be the most economical way for me to go and easiest to learn since I am used to the software already. But, also wondering if I should step up to MC while I have the chance.

    Just curious what the opinions are of MC users that have already been using it. Love it/hate it? Worth the money? Worth the extra learning curve to learn new software?

    Thanks, Ryan

    Takes a lot of getting used to, but then I don't have experience with any others. The sub hand off gets screwed up to often, and alot of other glitches. In my opinion Mastercam hasn't spent a lot of energy on the lathe side in 10 years.

    I have found it to work great on a standard CY axis with sub. Not sure what version John is running. But I have and I know many others that use Mastercam for this all the time.

    If you want more power for your mills and lathes I would move to Mastercam.

    A little disappointment in MC, They do not have a real machine simulation for the lathe stuff. Kind of a big selling point to someone like me thats new to multi axis lathe and can fully see my exact machine during a simulation. I want to make sure another tool in the turret doesn't interfere, stick out too far and run into the machine wall, see the part passed off to the sub, etc. Pretty much everyone else, including lowly BobCad, has this now days. For 15k in software I would expect them to have all the bells and whistles.
