Hi everyone,
I have been using TurboCad for a lot of year and was wondering about the cam side of it, I have Bobcad v23 now and would like to find something else that would be more stable, I draw everything in TC now, can it do 3D well? Is there a link that has l lot of files or video of work that has been done with TC and cam?
Thanks
Gary

(1) Its Only 2-1/2 D.(2)Not really.Some video links via TC Cam forum (3)Might want to check out the trial version first.(4) Would be best to explore compatibility first and visit the link below.To see if a match at your end.

Personally I have not experienced any stability issues. With that said, I have not cut anything too complex either. Are you using  a cnc mill, router, lathe, plasma?

I am using a router, really looking for something that does 3D. Maybe they will come out with it one day, I'll keep checking back.
Thanks

From the info on from the survey, it looks as though TC CAM may be heading in that direction in the future
