    Default Rhinocam version choice

    Hi, I'm a hobby guy with a good CNC 3-axis mill that I can use to make model aircraft moulds, but I don't understand the complexities of CNC.

    I have been using Rhino and Madcam with pretty good success but I do get regular bugs with certain types of cuts. I've been wondering whether I should consider changing to Rhinocam?? (all advice/ criticism welcomed!).

    If choosing a Rhinocam version, the Xpress mill version is cheap, but is it correct that it does not include Z level finish cuts, choice of contour/ parallel etc, or remachining? These are things I regularly use when trying to cut complex 3D shapes very accurately.

    Does the standard version include all these options? Or do need to go to the full version??

    Any advice appreciated. Thanks, Andrew.

    Hello, I work with MecSoft, developer of RhinoCAM.
    Z level finishing (Horizontal Finishing) is not included in Xpress configuration. This is available starting with Standard.
    Z level roughing (Horizontal Roughing) & Parallel finishing - is included in all configurations.
    Re-machining and other advanced 3 axis machining methods are only available in Pro & Premium configurations.
    Feel free to click the Feature list tab at https://mecsoft.com/rhinocam-mill/ for a detailed comparison of all features in each configuration.

    Best regards,
    Quelly del Mundo

    Any software have bugs. RC too.
    Last one boring me is time to time it ignores side slots in curves created by boolean. This problem appears in 2016 and they not fix it yet.
    Also it have bug with first XY pass feed reduce, it affect first cut level only. All other lever will be cut at full speed.
    Another one - when you choose Skim instead of Clearance plane, RC ignore stock between cut areas causing tool break.
    It takes a lot of memory when calculating TP, and using same single core with rhino, all other taking rest meanwhile.
    Simulation cause RC crash if you choose mesh sym model. Voxtel sym model looks badly.
    You cannot capture screenshot of simulation - it's invisible for Rhino. Also i cannot export simulation result as stl - RC crash.
    BTW, for TP creation it using rough mesh created by Rhino for display and render. If you change mesh settings in Rhino all TP created by RhinoCAM may disappoint you.
    And many many more.
    Comparing with MadCAM RhinoCAM have more friendly interface.
    IMHO.

    Thank you, but this reply was my personal opinion about your product, not a claim.
    And it was addressed to Andrew.
    Few month before you recommend me to be registered at your forum to post my bugreports.
    I was quite surprised, because Russia was banned by Mecsoft since 2014.
    I tried pass registration, but your moderator too far away, or just ignored me.
    I don't want contact your support, because all this bugs may me corrected by tp or rhino tools. I know how it can be done.
    Best regards.
