Being so “visual” in the way that RhinoCAM presents the job, is where I’ve found it very easy to learn myself. To be able to visually see your setup, stock material, and operations in relation to the part is very helpful. The ease of use and step by step approach to the user interface walks you through the process of generating toolpath.

We do everything in Rhino! What we love is that it provides us a seamless operation platform. Often when transitioning from one CAD system to another there is unnecessary data that gets carried over. This complicates the design process by introducing additional work. We can model designs in RhinoCAD, with the assurance of knowing that there will not be a problem in RhinoCAM. Everything is done right the first time!

…my impressions of VisualMill: 1) Clean, well-designed and well-organized menu structure. 2) Impressive graphics, especially in the simulation. 3) Above average calculation speed, both for toolpath, and for simulation. 4) Easily understandable icons. Well designed and implemented icons, not cryptic at all.

Something else I forgot …to tell you again what a wonderful program Visual Mill is. I can’t imagine doing what I am without it. The other programs I have used don’t even come close to the versatility, speed and functions.
We have been using VisualMill since a few years now and I can say that it’s way of integrating with Rhino is just perfect. There is an impressive amount of cutting strategies and the ability of importing curves from Rhino so to machine a limited area will save you twice the time: once because you will only machine a specific area, twice because you don’t need to generate again the area boundary manually. I also like how small details have been taken care of. As an example you can interact (rotate) the model in VisualMill just like you would do in Rhino with the right mouse botton…or pan it in the same way. It’s a productive tool and we are happy with it.

… my congratulations for the Excellent Interface. Its really intuitive and easy to use. Another important feature is the simulation of material remove.

I’m still often surprised when CADCAM dealers call to try to sell me their wares, and they say they haven’t heard of Rhino or VisualMill! Is it because their relatively lower prices make people not take them seriously? VisualMill lets you machine the complex shapes you design in Rhino accurately and completely. If you just need approximate shapes, the much cheaper stl programs are good, but if you need to follow curves (and straight lines), and make your cutter go efficiently the way you want it to in specific areas, you need a program like VisualMill. Very easy to learn, quite reliable, great support. Lots of machining strategies available.
VisualMill offers even the novice user to create toolpaths in a very short time, and with use difficult jobs become much easier. With an extensive array of machining operations to choose from, 3D machining in VisualMill is relatively quite simple yet extremely powerful. It is laid out with intelligence in mind, not bogging down the user with useless items on the screen. Great job at MecSoft.

Are you sure there is not a zero missing at the end of the price for this product?

After only a few minutes into the first VisualMill demo, we recognized and were inspired by the fact that VisualMill would change the way we work thereby eliminating most of our programming problems. In fact, our old problems would be replaced with an entirely new and larger set of challenges. VisualMill will enable us to do jobs we would otherwise have to subcontract. On the first day, the team was generating good CNC code or “toolpaths”, and on the second day the team was machining actual parts.
