Hi Ralph,
Don't get to excited here. I went to Kineo's site earlier today and it appears they will be adding to the design side of things with motion analysis of stuff like robots for I presume work cells and assembly lines. This is not for actual cnc machining like HSMWorks.

"What is with the allergy to buying US CAM firms"

Mastercam is the most popular CAM program in the US and all it has going for it is market share. Mastercam is dated, and wastes tons of a users time by requiring constant chaining of geometry for toolpath. I've used Mastercam almost everyday for the last five years.

The best thing that could happen to Mastercam it is that it be sold to an owner who cares. Mastercam needs to be completely rewritten from the ground up.
