CAD Recommendation

Recommended Posts

Lokesh67

Hello Everyone , 

I have a questions regarding CAD tool . The company I work has bought a Atom Knife cutter and planning to  buy CNC. Company Manufacture gaskets and with CNC planning to manufacture seals ( mostly Urethane seals). Based on your experience can you please help me in finding out which CAD tool will be best fit for both the machine ( ATom knife cutter and CNC). I have some experience with atom knife cutter. Atom Knife cutter uses DXF file and want the file only to have arcs and lines. I have worked on Turbo CAD and it works well with Atom knife cutter but  I have heard that Turbo CAD is not good for CAM translation . If you can recommend me a CAD software which can fits with both machine will be great. 

 

Thank You 

Lokesh

Yeah.......I am skeptical of ANY product that doesn't have it's price right out in the open.

That generally means the price you pay, and the price that I pay, and the price that the next person pays, are all different.

Yep! I mean at least give a base price no including options (support etc).

I agree, if you won't show your prices you are either admitting they are high or you are happy to rip people off.

 

One of the biggest 3D Software companies is a typical example (I'm sure we all know who I mean).

 

I once looked into some industry specific software, and once they found out I had quotes from other companies they literally cut the price by 50%!

 

The only information I could find about the cost for CuteCad was on a 3rd party site and that was 1,870.00 Euros, presumably for the base program.

I mean it doesn't look like bad software at all. I just don't like NOT seeing a starting price. I mean even AutoDesk has the price on the web site.

If the end result is a dxf file then most of the "Clones" would probably meet your needs.

 

The thing to look for with a clone is dynamic blocks, programming support at least Lisp, VBA and .Net  desirable.
