Mach3 Addons & Mill Wizard ?'s
« on: November 14, 2014, 01:29:42 PM »
I have BobCAD/CAM. I need to purchase a license of Mach3. If you buy Mach3 now, does it come with addons, or does it have to be bought separate at $50?

If it has to be bought separate, is it worth buying if you have CAM software? I have not had time to play with mach or the addons, or research it, but I need to place an order today that will include a Mach3 license.

Is Mill Wizard worth having if you have CAM software?

I use the addons quite a bit for really simple stuff such as cutting a keyway, cutting a circular hole, bolt hole pattern or rounding the end of stock. It is much easier than using BobCAD or any CAM for simple things like that. If however you rarely do things such as mentioned then likely the CAM would be used more.
