RhinoCAM is perfect for us because it allows interested students to go much further into the software than what is simply required by the class. There are so many different ways to create toolpaths that it keeps it interesting for me as well. When students come to me with unique challenges I’m always learning something new – I love it!

I started out using Dolphin® CAD from Dolphin® USA but soon ran into support issues. Every time I had a problem, I ended up in a conference call with a technician overseas that I had difficulty understanding.
Then in 2008, I learned how to use Rhino® and VisualMILL® and purchased my first CNC machine in 2009. I downloaded the VisualMILL® and I was hooked! That free demo was the best thing that ever happened for me because that’s when I learned how to use your software! It’s that easy to learn! Plus your technical support is awesome!
I looked at MasterCAM® but the cost was prohibitive and I didn’t want to spend the weeks of recommended training that would be required to get started. I also spoke with other MasterCAM® users and was told to expect 3-6 months of experience “to get it right.”
I then tried another CAM program called BobCAM® and was unhappy with it. Even though I purchased it, I don’t even use it! I’ve been with MecSoft ever since! Also, the technical support is by far better than any other company I have worked with and they will call you back!
I started teaching design classes in 2003 and in 2006 we purchased our first CNC machine which launched us into the world of digital fabrication. We started out using MasterCAM® but that lasted less than a year! I found MasterCAM® too cumbersome and difficult to teach students how to use it.
RhinoCAM® has been a much more usable tool for us. After just a few hours of watching videos, 80% of my students get it right the first time!

We initially purchased BobCAD-CAM that included a post processor for my machine’s WinCNC controller… However, after a year of struggling with the product, we decided to switch to VisualMILL and VisualCAD/CAM from Mecsoft Corporation. It’s been a pleasure ever since!
Thanks, Support….for this super resume of actions taken. Very handy indeed…. and I’ll copy for my files and make email/references available for other techs here at DVC.
Although not a user of the app, I am a user of your technical and licensing resources. I am very pleased with the continuing high level of response and support and follow-up. And not for the first time….every issue since we purchased has been quickly and effectively handled by the MecSoft tech team (and there have been but few issues).
Too, Sales and Accounting have responded efficiently to P.O. and payment questions….I’ve talked to them perhaps 10 times over the past few years and have always enjoyed prompt and friendly answers. Thanks… simply Thanks!

Before RhinoCAM, we would spend an entire day with an English wheel hand-forming the compound curvatures of these skin panels. Now, with my ShopSabre CNC router and RhinoCAM, I machine one die that we can use to form-press multiple skin panels with greater accuracy and in a fraction of the time! This has been a huge advantage for us!

The support you guys have provided us has literally saved me from a tremendous loss of business! We took on a large amount of work at the time and because you were willing to work with us as we got up to speed with the software, we were able to get that work done on time and on budget! Thank you, MecSoft!
In the beginning, we started out using BobCAM® but kept having to buy additional modules for basic 2½ axis machining. It was also difficult to learn while learning Rhino without the ability to change our Rhino models easily. It was wonderful this year to be able to switch over to RhinoCAM where changes to the Rhino 3D models are easily updated in the CAM operations!

I’m a new RhinoCam 2016 Expert user. These Webinars are excellent. I watched my first live one yesterday on sign making and have watched a dozen or so of the archived videos. Keep them coming. I make bicycles in a one-person operation –Rollingartbicycles.com– and am setting up with CNC to make some of the aluminum parts.
