Surfware has spent years almost entirely focused on better toolpaths. Unfortunately better toolpaths, while very important, don't make up an entire CADCAM system. It's time for Surfware to port to or license decent CAD as Surfcam's CAD is very badly outdated. In fact, Surfcam doesn't even have a lousy solid modeler thrown on top of their old wireframe like Mastercam does.

Personally I'd love it if Surfware found a direct modeler to work with and licensed the CAD source code from someone like SpaceClaim. Now that would be a kick donkey CADCAM system!

That's a very insightful comment. Cuts to the chase, and provides constructive feedback.

If Surfware comes to COFES next year, I'd love to introduce them to a few people who might be able to partner with them to make that "kick donkey" CAD/CAM system.
