"Used Surfcam for university projects"

What do you like best?

Is a user friendly software for NC programming. The interface and the tools are easy to learn and use. Has many available tutorials. Good part is also it's compatibility with Solidworks.

What do you dislike?

Problems I recall with the software is mainly related to frequent crashes of the software, and time to generate the visualization of the toolpaths, sometimes the software were crashing losing half of the job. However, I believe software upgraded since the time I used it.

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

Surfcam was used in the university CAD/CAM laboratory (American University of Armenia) for product design projects as well as for external projects in cooperation with different companies. During 1 year of my involvement in the lab, Surfcam helped to translate the designs for CNC Milling machine, and results were satisfying.

What do you like best?

With SURFCAM Velocity I could dynamically manage tool loads, produce smoother cuts and boost productivity on any existing CNC. True-Mill provides a revolutionary new toolpath engine that precisely controls the tool's engagement with the material, enabling the use of much more aggressive machining parameters, which in turn results in significantly reduced cycle times.

What do you dislike?

While doing both lathe and milling jobs with the same version, Vel 3 did not convert back to 3 axis mill view after I programmed a lathe job. I ended up running the lathe on the Vel 2 and my mill on Vel 3. But this bug was later fixed by Surfcam.

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

Everything can be customized, from tooling to the set-up sheets. You can really set it up so that you can use it the way that you want to.

"older version, its a pain"

What do you like best?

SUrfcam is only cam what our company have for this type of machine. So only advantage is 5axis milling.

What do you dislike?

Painful user interface, very bugy on newer systems like winodws 10. Must save work every second. No backup for certain operation

Recommendations to others considering the product

Upgrade your software.
