Ok -- will keep an eye out for V11 pro -- but let me explain what I'm after.
(1) First of all, I don't use cad every day and I need something as user friendly as possible.
(2) My parts are VERY simple drawings of small aluminum parts and all I need to do is ba able to export to DXF for the fabrication shop and have the part (hopefully in 3D with those dimensions listed as well). I generally just do simple bends, round holes etc.
Now -- I LOVE the software from emachineshop.com and the only other one I like (and I've tried them all) is one called A9CAD.
Very basic stuff but just what I'm after. When you start these programs, everything is very familiar even when you haven't used it in a year.
Unfortunately, emachineshop will only interface with their service which is extremely pricey and A9CAD doesn't give me a 3D view.
So, with all that in mind, what do you think?
Should I still go with pro?
I was looking at the Turbocad deluxe 14 because it's only 25 bucks -- you think it's worth a try?
There is a real market out there for a program that is easy, cheap and has a focus on creating CNC parts.
All the architectural and other stuff I'll never use.
