Configurations


VisualMILL 2017 CAM software comes in 5 different configurations to suit the varied machining needs of our customers.

VisualMILL 2017 Xpress (XPR)

This is a general purpose program tailored for hobbyists, makers and students. Ideal for getting started with CAM programming. Includes 2 & 3 axis machining methods. Packed with sufficiently powerful manufacturing methods this easy to use package is not only effective but also attractively priced for the budget conscious or entry level buyer.

VisualMILL 2017 Standard (STD)

This is a general purpose machining program targeted at the general machinist. This product is ideal for the rapid-prototyping, hobby and educational markets where ease of use is a paramount requirement. Includes 2-1/2 Axis, 3 Axis and Drilling methods.

VisualMILL 2017 Expert (EXP)

This configuration allows 4th Axis Indexed and continuous roughing and finishing operations in VisualMILL 2017. Curve based continuous machining such as 4 Axis Facing, Pocketing, Profiling & Engraving as well as Surface/solids/meshes based machining such as Roughing, Finishing and Curve Projection machining are available. This configuration includes all of the functionality included in the STD configuration.

VisualMILL 2017 Professional (PRO)

This powerful package is ideal for mold, die and tooling, wood working rapid-prototyping and general machining markets. This product boasts of powerful toolpath generation strategies coupled with tools for efficiently controlling the cutting tool for detailed machining capabilities, while not sacrificing ease of use. Suitable for demanding users with sophisticated manufacturing requirements. This product configuration includes all of the functionality included in the EXP configuration described above.
