I've had to upgrade to the latest AutoDesk Inventor 2010 software to get stress analysis features at work.
Unfortunately EdgeCAM compatibility is lost with each new Inventor version . . . and I really don't want to spend $8k (or whatever price it was, I forgot) to buy an upgrade to it every few years.
I only need it for the Haas 3-axis mill (xyz), and don't want to have to write compatibility code for it if possible . . . My parts tend to have odd/complex shapes that are hard to do by manually writing g-code. But nothing much more complicated than say parts on my ERP.
Anyone recommend any CAM software
? Easy of use, simplicity, fast learning curve, and compatibility are my primary concerns. Price doesn't really matter, but cheaper than EdgeCAM would be best!
