    I am looking for user feedback on BobCAD CAM software. Does anyone use BobCAD to program their parts?

    I'm using SolidCAM, into SolidWorks (It goes also into Inventor). It's pretty good and relatively easy to learn. There's a LOT of tutorials on SoliCAM site.
    I tryed Mastercam X3, but SolidCAM seams to be much more easy and equally powerfull.
    You can export files from Delftship or FreeShip to SolidWorks, then mechanize them with SolidCAM. I used this technique to make some little wood models on a big cnc milling machine.
