I have read about artcam pro.  How is the learning curve?  Does it have good features?  I assume it can do a rotary axis with no problems?  Any limitations that you have run into?

Thanks.

Dan,  I would have to say the learning curve is not that bad, just depends on an individuals computer illiteracy, but to be some what proficient takes time and work for the modeling side, drawing, cam, v-carving etc very straight forward quick and easy.
Has some of the top all round features of any package, guess I'm a little bias, there is a fews things I would prefer in the software but no limitations on my behalf. And yes you can output for an indexer

I use ArtCam as well. Another program you may want to look at is Vectric. It was developed by the same folks. Here is a link.

Good point Brett, Tony & Brian have an excellent package in their V-Carve pro and now their 3d machinist software, for the money its hard to beat

No, I just read the web site. Didn't see anything about an A axis output.

I did a search on their forum and found a post that asked about controlling a rotary axis and the answer was that vcarve pro cannot output to a rotary axis.
