Is there a way to extract geometry from solids in surfcam? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks

Surfcam will bring in a solid and convert it to wireframe and surfaces. If you open a Solidworks part file for example, that's how they come in.

If you want to open a solid file that you don't have a translator for, like UG NX4 in my case, you have the UG guy export his file as a parasolid, (UG-file.X_T) and Surfcam will open that file the same way, wireframe on one layer, and surfaces on another. Hope this helps.

Glad Iwas able to help.

As for the 4th axis stuff, sorry I can't be any help, but there are some folks on here who can be.
