Program is the one of the best and you can use so many guides about it. You can program 3 and 5 axis machines. Also you can develop that program ONLINE! You heard me. One of my client from India said they've done it.

Easy to understand, very easy to generate Gcodes, since I am a fan of Solidworks over all, it was easy for me to adapt

PowerMill often has multiple updates that I have to install on my personal software, so it would be nice if PowerMill could more easily be updated.

Software has its limitations as compare to others like overload part it cant proceed easily.
