Need Cad\Cam package

Ok I need to buy a complete cam\cad package. I prototype with a small 4axis HAAS
mill, a small HAAS lathe, and soon a 3D printer. As a former MasterCam guy I
could go that way but because I am a new start-up, I am looking at well....
cheaper.
I focus most all my attention on making parts..... not the power of my cam
package or the tools I use. I make small complicated parts using complicated
fixturing.
My engineers use Solidworks.... I don't want to.
I am looking at something like Rhino 4.0 and RhinoCam PRO 2.0 but then there is
turning. So anyway just looking at suggestions.... not verbal warfare. :)Thank
you for any help.

Sorry for the delay in responding..... Thanks for the thoughts. I am going to WESTEC next week and talk to the sales dudes. I will also look at that fella's reviews and see what he has to say. Again thanks all. - Terrance
