"Quality Matters"

What do you like best?

Usual AutoDesk quality. One of the best for CNC Programming. Program created for new users we can say. If you're familiar with these programs. You can dance better. New users surely find many tutorials online. Program also uses very low % of CPU. That means your fan won't run like crazy. Also they has a dark theme option which is great for who has eye problems like me.

What do you dislike?

If you don't have a high-quality computer, animation won't be so fluent and smooth but don't worry even if you have, the difference is not so much.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You can't buy quality with less. So prepare to pay a little bit more than other programs. You will find everything in this program. Usual AutoDesk quality.

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

We learned SolidCAM at university and I just try to use FeatureCAM. In technical drawing lessons our teacher compares AutoCAD and SolidWorks always. So we decided to try this side of CAM program this time :) Only few projects.

"Worthwhile software with many capabilities"

What do you like best?

The automatic speed / feed rate calculation for different materials and the process for creating stock is a pretty good feature . The software is also fast provided the user has experience using it . Overall , If you're doing the same type of parts over and over again I would say FeatureCAM is very good . The fact that it supports 5 axis simulation and multi turret operations is a definite plus . The software is pretty fast and even if it takes some time to get used to , the end result is worth it. A very user friendly software .

What do you dislike?

There are some softwares out there that can take complicated parts with multiple operations better than FeatureCAM . The integration of Solidworks with FeatureCAM isn't really that great as I dealt with problems with auto feature recognition . The simulation feature is also not upto the mark .

Recommendations to others considering the product:

FeatureCAM is definitely a good software when it comes to ease of use, and please do explore the different features it provides the user with. The features like 5 axis simulations and multi turret operations is a plus point for this software, so please use that. Overall it's worth it looking at it from a business standpoint also from the usability point of view.

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

I haven't used this software for business problems yet, but this software has very good capabilities and using this for such purposes can save up on time.

What Computer-Aided Manufacturing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Form is temporary. Class is permanent."

What do you like best?

AutoDesk's quality salutes us. Interface is simple, user friendly. Probably other programs can't reach this quality in next 10 years. Autodesk knows what user needs. You will put the part and use " Turn Properties ". You'll see your options so simply in opened window. I loved it.

What do you dislike?

Autodesk wants more again. You may need to upgrade your computer in next versions. ( You can't have the high quality cheap. )

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're new, Autodesk will always help you. There are so many tutorials online. You will quick easily. Don't worry this product is very user friendly.

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

While viewing Autodesk products I would like to try it. I just simulated in my home but I saw how it works in a company near my house. But I didn't have a machine part from it.

"Probably the best solution for small pieces"

What do you like best?

This program makes you to use your CNC machine efficiently. Codes are so sensitive. Using it is so easy. I wasn't even meet with any CAM programs before FeatureCAM and I learned so quickly. Interface is simple and brilliant.

What do you dislike?

Animations could be more softer. Nothing else.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I was very delightful when I used it. It's easy to learn and use. Don't hesitate to buy it. You can make sure that your machine's performance will improve after using this program.

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

Worked on very small pieces at university's labs.

"Support/compatibility not equal to cost"

What do you like best?

This definitely reduces programming time. I like the platform; I can appreciate the ease of use and user friendly imaging that many of the younger guys found simpler and easier. However, the veterans, although they like it found compatibility issues that they couldn’t overcome or work with negating the usefulness vs cost factor.

What do you dislike?

Program does not allow for C Axis Support; and the cost is considerably more than EZ cam; for this reason; for us it is not cost effective at this time. If C Axis support is integrated I may give it another go in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Too pricy!

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

We have since discontinued use; so no benefits realized at this time.

"User Friendly. Happy "

What do you like best?

For CNC programming, this is one of the best software one can recommend. The five axis simulation provided by this software is a major plus. The codes are sensitive and using this software is very easy.

What do you dislike?

There is no feature to dislike. Everything seems pretty good

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

Used it in the automatic irrigation project to simulate various measurements.

"Quality of AutoDesk"

What do you like best?

All FeatureCAM models have same interface. It is fast, flexible and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Menu Bar needs to be improve. Design is not well. Animation should be more fluent while doing 3D Milling.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are so many guides to learn it. Easy to learn and use. You will find additional comments and directions for every operation.

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

"Average FeatureCAM user"

What do you like best?

Simulating in 3D to allow you to verify and check the features collision.

What do you dislike?

I have found a bit downsides is the lack of "Deleting the Duplicates" feature comparing to SolidCAM or MasterCAM

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easy to use but I'm still recommend any new user to take a basic training course to build a solid foundation.

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

I like the quick bolt patterns of bolt circle, pocket and such in FeatureCAM as it save so much time to draw it.

"Moderately Happy"

What do you like best?

Feature recognition in Featurecam. Its trocoidal milling feature with chip thinning feed optimizer saves you a ton of time. Demo is very informative.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that you cannot have one person programming and another designing at the same time, you must do it separately. Was used to solid works which has this feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Watch the demo, trial and error help as well. Just mess around with it.

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

Efficient in speed. Cuts time in half.

"It is user friendly and fast"

What do you like best?

It is a powerful tool for computer simulation of CAMD

What do you dislike?

I think it should be more user friendly in terms of sketching

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

Drawing the scalable geometry to check its functionality
