Thread: For discussing the merits of alternative 3D CAD programs.

Sincere apologies. I got confused with too much online trawling. It is VisualCAMc that is available for Onshape and not Parasolid CAM.


14/11/2018 18:07:36

Since it was mentioned in this thread. I have been trialing "Onshape" the free option for hobbyists. It the most intuitive parametric 3D system I have come across, and I have used many. The learning curve is rapid and the Tube video`s are most comprehensive. If you are currently looking to start or looking for a fully featured system for nothing, Including the option of Parasolid Cam. You would not regret spending an hour or two getting to know this programme.

Usual disclaimers.

Russel - Thanks for the Onshape reminder. Have not used it for some years. it has come on leaps and bounds. It is now almost second nature to a Solidworks exponent. Excellent
