We are running several seats of Cimatron iT. We have used this software since
around 1987 and have been exceptionally pleased. Almost everytime another SW
publisher annoubces some new feature it seems we already have the

you can get the standalone NC/CAM package or a complete bundle including full
featured solids and a variety of other apps.

<< Subj: Best CAM Software

 Who makes the best CAM software for 3, 4, and 5-axis machining? I'm most
 interested in hearing from users.
 The CAM market is incredibly fragmented (much worse than the CAD market),
 with CNC Software (Mastercam) owning 12% of the market and 9 others owning
 3 to 7%, according to CIMdata. The remaining 52% of the market is made up
 of 90 other companies that own 2% or less. If you talk with 10 companies,
 chances are good that only 2, maybe 3, will be using the same software.
 There's no clear winner. I have the most experience with Surfcam from
 Surfware, but I'm not sure it's the answer.
 Look forward to hearing from anyone with an opinion.
