We just went through a CAM eval phase. We felt we needed a more general
purpose CAM than we were using. We settled on Visual Mill 4.0, which is a
tremendous deal especially if you own or want to buy a seat of Rhino or
several other CAD programs that they bundle with. A real bargain is that
the fully functional, Visual Mill 3.0 which does just raster milling,
constant Z, is free (until this spring at least!). You can see if it will
read the stl files ok. 3.0 read our stl's just fine, 4.0 just arrived in
the mail yesterday so I am playing with it today!

Best Wishes.
