QCAD 3.2 now with CAM addon

Post by alpha » Fri Aug 16, 2013 9:20 pm

I did not had time to play with the new version of QCAD 3.2 (free and open source) yet, but I did notice it includes a CAM add on (not free, but 15 min trial mode with restart possible).

Did anybody try the CAM module yet?

On the CAD it self it looks like some new tools got added and some other tools got some updates. I only looked very briefly over it but so far I like what I see.

I recently upgraded my QCAD to QCADCAM ver 3.4.2
Early experiments with GCode back end look good.
QCAD now supports per Layer Z depth, a workable 2.5D solution.

QCAD folks also working on a Machine Simulator
