"Mouse Killer"

What do you like best?

You can draw, punch, mill.. you can do whatever you want. It is commonly using by companies. You can find many of guides on internet and special courses. You have many options to learn also program is getting better and better. They're developing themselves well.

What do you dislike?

Like in title, your mouse gonna be die soon. You can use this program with only mouse ( I mean with mouse combos!) If you have more button to click in your mouse, you can use this program better :) But you gonna be ill from your finger bones.

Program is not so easy to use. That tires people a lot.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Program is good but not easy to use. You need to click every button in your mouse same time (sometimes). But you can do lots of thing in one program so you don't need more than one program to do what you want.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making designs and draw 3D Models.

"3d modeling"

What do you like best?

With cimatron 3D, you can save time with repetitive tasks, and many more features that will surprise you

In spite of the fact that Cimatron is a slightly unusual or little known program, it is a program that requires knowledge in the area of ​​3D modeling.

It's a little complex for people who start at Cimatron

Before using Cimatron 3D, it is necessary to have knowledge about this program, since it is a very complex software and it is not easy to use, you must have asespria, or look for the manual to take full advantage of its functionality

"Lovely partner for 3d Printer"

What do you like best?

3d Rendering. I have Prusa i3 model 3d Printer. I'm finding draws on internet and rendering in this program. Also it has capability to draw it but I prefer to print much detailed models and toys which I can't draw so I'm using Cimatron to do it.

What do you dislike?

I need to click so many times. There are so many mouse shortcuts and I prefer to click from menu bar as possible as I can. There isn't any problem except this. It's not a big deal anyway. You're getting used to it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have 3d printer it's a very good solution to work with Cimatron. Before I sold my printer I was using cimatron and if I have 3d printer back I'll use it again.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rendering 3d parts for 3d printer.

"Good product "

What do you like best?

It is the perfect program for 3D modeling. The use of tools is very advanced but it is manageable to use and all its functions are perfectly designed to help you with your 3D modeling. I like that Cimatron is not that expensive, and that you could buy it without hurting your budget if you wanted too. Cimatron makes doing 3D modeling a breeze.

What do you dislike?

First-time users may have difficulties adapting to Cimatron, so I think working on having a tutorial to help the first-time users would be great, because if you are not already using programs for making 3D models then Cimatron will be very hard on you. Cimatron is not a very known program, and it is a program that requires knowledge in the area of ​​3D modeling. So please as I stated, work on making a tutorial guide for the first-time users, because I know how hard it can be if you don't know what you really are doing when working with 3D modeling programs.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Okay, so before you use Cimatron, you should know that it is mainly for the area use of 3D modeling. So it is necessary to have knowledge about 3D modeling programs and how to work with Cimatron before you use this program. It is fairly inexpensive, and you can buy it without hurting your budget.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am not really solving problems with Cimatron because I don't use it a whole lot, nor do I really need to use it, but it is a great program. The benefits for Cimatron are really great. You can do all things that you need to with CImatron that involve 3D modeling. The reason I do not really need it is because I am more of a blogger, and I love helping people find new programs, so I find and use new programs to me and tell peoplle about it in my blogs.
