We evaluated several low cost cad/cam programs about 5 years ago when we
thought we'd need it for a project...
Dolphin was one that I liked enough to actually purchase (they had a
really good price at the time) and it had some great features.
It turned out that we could do everything we needed by directly
programming our MillZilla machine (Hurco KMB conversational control on a
Wells-Index mill) so our Dolphin installation got lost during a hard
drive failure. Also, (IIRC) their post-processor for the Hurco had a
glitch that they didn't know about... (It's very case-sensitive).
Considering they're offering a sale price, maybe it's time to renew -
like I said, it seemed to do some stuff (intersecting arcs, for one)

you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines.
