And even the simplest CAD/CAM is always going to be faster than hand writing the code, as long as you are proficient with the software you're using.Originally Posted by HuFlungDung
Simple can mean different things to different people. But like the previous two posts, I'd recommend doing everything in CAD. You still should know how to read and write g-code, and know it well. But the CAD/CAM route will be faster, and less prone to errors (typos).Some of the posts so far have mentioned simple or simpler programs; how do you define simple?
No. Spend that time learning some CAD/CAM, even if it's A9CAD http://www.a9tech.com and ACE http://www.dakeng.comI don't have cam so I hand write it I have one code that is 374 lines and not even an 1/8 done IS IT WORTH IT????
You'll have a lot more time on your hands once you let the software write the code.
