The Jon Banquer blog will have a review of what's coming in DP Esprit
2010, which is going to be a very impressive release. DP Technology
joins SolidCAM as one of the few CAM companies who have put their foot
on the gas despite what has happened to the economy.
Ohhh, Jon watched some Esprit videos on Youtube, so now he's abot to
"review" what's coming.
Jon, you can't even correctly "review" or use the software you have
access to. How are you going to "review" software you've never seen?
Where was the Esprit 2009 conference held?
San Diego, CA
Where does Jon Banquer work?

How often does the real, fake Joe788 get it wrong or just out right
Every time he posts just like Cliffy Huprich and Tom Brewer.
So you went to a conference, and watched Youtube videos of Esprit, and
now you're going to review it?
How many parts have you made with it? How long have you been using it?
You can't even use the most basic functions of the software you've
been claiming to use for years.
You really can't expect me to keep all my lies straight. Besides, it
is really hard typing with just one hand (still blistered).
I really don't have a clue about Gibscam, as chaining is normal but
Gibbs calls it something different which confuses me.
I should probably just quit posting as my butt is getting tired from
being kicked to the curb on a post by post basis.

First of all Esprit is a french word....
Esprit sux. When it first came out it was designed for 2 dimensional
drawing, wire edm software.
It had a couple of real kickass gimmics, it was able to draw a line with no
endpoints. Pretty handy way to draw fast for 2d stuff. Real good trimming
and filleting for it's day.
But that was it. All it had.
I was using smartcam, and the shop next door was using esprit. the smartcam
was a milling package. I simply said my cutter was .0056 for a .0006
We had a race. It was shameful. Needlesss to say we did not buy esprit.
Fast forward to the 90's. Esprit gets in bed with charmille and mitsubishi,
and all of a sudden their esprit is bundled in the wire edm machine like it
Next damn thing you know Esprit is THE wire edm software period. But it
didn't do anything bobwire wouldn't do.
But the wire machine folks gave them exclusive access to their power
setting, creating "knowledge base".
Bottom line is esprit sucked all along. They got famous from buying off the
Ive used their milling software, I used their X version, and 2001-2003
FUCK THEM! Their software was buggy, the maint was friggen outragous, and
there's no damn difference between the 2000 version and the 2003 version.
After all that...I'm supposed to be impressed by anything ESPRIT has done
I'll pass. They suck and always will suck.
This is the kind of thing Esprit has always bragged about:
"One of the biggest advantages of ESPRIT is the way it lets us validate the
program on a computer screen rather than tying up a much more expensive
machine tool . mistakes can take a considerable amount of expensive machine
time to diagnose and correct. With ESPRIT, we can find them in the
simulation. This helps explain why nearly every part that we program works
perfectly the first time we run it on the machine."
OH MAN< LOOKY AT ESPRIT< it has verify? Damn.....where's my checkbook!
