    Default AS3000 3D Level 5 CAD/CAM Software

    Hello, I am new to cnc machining and I am looking at purchasing AS3000 3D Level 5 CAD/CAM Software by CamSoft. Has anybody used it? I need a software package that will let me do cad drawings from scratch, and of course do cam and dnc. Can any of you help me? Thank you

    I just answered Pietbez in the post below about seeing the AS3000 packages on E-Bay for much cheaper than what Camsoft sells them for. I only have used Level-1 and my customer has Level-10 which has the features of Level 5. I know there's better stuff out there but it's works well for him and has been good for me.

    I just seen an email from camsoft that level 5 AS3000 is on sale for a fraction of the normal price. I'm not the expert but I think level 5 would offer good value, especially if you have a Camsoft machine control.

    I'm lucky, my son has spent years working as a CNC programmer. He kocks out a mastercam program in minutes after I provide an Autocad drawing. He looked at level 1 and thought it was junk. But keep in mind, he's used to an $18,000 per seat package with unbelievable support.

    I have level 5 of as3000 and I use it from time to time for turning difficult profiles - multiple radii and angles tangent to them and stuff like that. I have no idea how it works for milling but it does have a totally cusomizable post so you should be able to make it work for any machine. For the money it's worth it.

    Yes, Advanced System 3000 works with all Dynapath Delta controllers. The most popular models are the Delta 10, 20 and 40.

    Advanced System 3000 also allows you to switch between Mill and Lathe mode to handle both of the milling and turning controllers.

    ok awesome, next question. How do we get AS3000 to work with the dynapath controllers. Is there other software that we will need thats compatible with AS3000 and the dynapath controllers?

    Basically, you would need a post processor that matches the specific Dynapath model and machine type from us plus a copy of the Advanced System 3000 software.

    we have dynapath delta 2000m cnc controllers and one machine is a hurco and the other 2 machines are a custom 5 spindle machine drill press. The Cam Soft is AS3000 Level 1. We get models in iges format.

    Avery,

    We read this message after answering your last message the other Thread.

    Okay, that a good basis. We will need you to contact us , to get more detail on these machines. We can certainly provide the Hurco post processor as well as the custom 5 spindle drilling machine. We will need to configure the post for the custom 5 spindle machine , not sure on the Hurco yet.

    In the last post, we mentioned that Level-1 has limitations. So we also have to look at your IGES files to see if you need to upgrade.

    We see the both Mike and Jim spoke to one of the other techs here this morning. Avery, get with Mike and Jim then contact us below:

    Just a suggestion for you.

    I like FREE software. Almost as much as free beer

    Autodesk offers Fusion 360 free to small business, hobbyists, and students. It is GREAT for working with models, and has a decent CAM package to write Gcode. Downside is a bit of a learning curve. The online forum for help is second to none. The most valuable feature, IMHO.
