what will do your five axis, will the articulation be on the head, or will you do something different, if the 4th/5th is on the head, what kind of CAM will You use to handle translations and tool tip offsets?

Not sure what software I will use. Currently using BobCad/CAM V 21 but it does not support 5 axis.

Maybe Mastercam will come out with a full featured hobby version for less then $100???  Holding Breath...

This machine is getting heavy.  I'd estimate it at 3000 lbs as it sits.  It only gets bigger and heavier from here..  :)
