Hello.
I am thinking of building my own 4 Axis CNC Router.
Could anybody tell me if the CAM Plug In for 16.1 is still available to pruchase and whether it will support a 4 Axis Machine?

Thanks,
Brendan

TurboCAD/CAM cannot do 3D machining. You may want to look at Alibre or MeshCAM

Thank you for the quick response Kmartin.

Do you know if MeshCAM can import 3D Models created in TC? Would you be able to tell me in what extension I would have to export the model to enable MeshCAM to import please?

Thanks,
Brendan

Yes, MeshCam will import 3D Solid Models created in TurboCAD. I tested it using stl file type
