I'm pretty stoaked, it should be here today. Thanks for everyones help with my questions over the past few years, get ready for more. lol
Will do.Let us know how it goes
The only program I will have to compare it would be Solid Works. There was a lot about that program I didn't like, so we will see. But I can give you insight on how easy is it to pick up from a newbie perspective.
I have done design work in a completely different field and completely unrelated to machining or modeling. But, I did learn two programs in that field and they were as different as night and day. Anyway, from what Iíve seen and read on the One CNC program gets me excited to sit down and go to work. I easily have 2 dozen designs right out of the gate to get done.
Did you buy it primarily for the CAD or for the CAM? Are you a machinist already?
First you get good, then you get fast. Then grouchiness sets in.
(Note: The opinions expressed in this post are my own and are not necessarily those of CNCzone and its management)
Both CAD and Cam.
Up to now, manual machining only, just now trying to move to CNC.Are you a machinist already?
I have ZERO experience in CNC machining, but I've been researching it for about 4 years now. I have a small niche business I would like to move to CNC. I would like to get a Haas VF2, but given the recent fall in the economy I may have to settle for a lesser machine. I was going to purchase a new mill until my employer of 20 years closed their doors less than 2 weeks ago. It was in an unrelated field, but it was going to finance my first CNC purchase.
What does the "CD-key" look like?
The manual says is sometimes ships seperately or is in the manual. I don't recall what the sales gal said about this.
