Some months ago I downloaded MecSoft's Visual Mill 6.0 Pro demo for evaluation and did some of the tutorials and so forth. As I have finished a complete rework/update on my 1996 Feeler FV-800 VMC (with Mitsubishi Meldas 520 AMR control), I really needed a CAM sofware so I can feed it with toolpaths. I don't want to hand-program 2 1/2D at the CNC, let alone 3-axis and 4-axis. I want to be able to create my toolpaths in my PC and also run my 2 1/2axis, 3-axis, 4-axis programs (drip feed) directly from the PC.
In Sweden this package sell for just under 5 000 USD
It is the famous Midsummer holiday in Sweden tomorrow, so it will have to rest for a few days, but then I will install my Rhino4.0 + RhinoCAM2.0 PRO, do a lot more training and then hopefully start making my own toolpaths.
Any good advice, hints etc. from experienced VM6 / RhinoCAM2 users would be highly appreciated.
