Great software. I've been using it since its inception. She come a long way....

Subject: [multimachine] Cheap 5 axis CNC software?Is there such a thing? One of my middle of the night ideas seems to
require it. A brief description of my idea is a reclined MM with a
forth servo motor that can drive the spindle and a fifth servo/stepper
that would drive a rotary table that would be mounted on a CNC MM
cross slide. A limited capability Versamil (files) would sit on the
rotary table. Very complex shapes could be milled or ground.
The reason for the "reclining" (backwards)is to eliminate the need for
the vertical slide clamps to be tightened after a servo would raise or
Is there a fundamental flaw in the output of my 72 year old brain?
- Hi Group,
All this discussion of software had me looking for 3D drawing
software that I can use to create models of the sculpture that I make.
The CAD tools I looked at have squares, circles and arcs, but I'd
like a freehand
draw that renders the shape in 3D and allows me to sculpt it, pierce
add to it... then rotate it.
Dimensions aren't critical, but proportion and perspective is.
Anyone aware of software that will do this for under $50 USD ?
