    Hello Everyone,

    I need you help for a little academic research on CAM CAD software. Here is a little survey you can reply with a thread. Every help will be appreciated.

    Thanks, Lorenzo

    FROM 1 to 5 (1 low / 5 High)
    ex: how satisfied are with your software: 3

    how satisfied are with you software:

    how easy is to use:

    how clear is the user interface:

    how safe do you feel to use it:

    how much would you prefer a different interfaces:

    ex: the software is fine: AGREE

    the software is clear to use from the beginning:

    the software is safe to use:

    the system (hardware+software+position+safety) is easy to use and comfortable:

    I feel confident in working on my own:

    the steps are clear and progressive:

    help guide is easy to consult:

    Hi Lorenzo, I use CAD/CAM package that came with my used commercial CNC router. I am aware that it is expensive, but I was lucky enough to get it with the machine. I use Alphacam (not the latest version)and find that it ticks all the boxes for my own use (2D only). For me it ticks all the boxes and I could only give it maximum points in all areas. G.

    How can it be determined if the software is safe to use ? I can't see any of it being developed to IEC61508 standard for example, what is the required Safety Integrity Level (SIL) for a CNC machine ?

    Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted

    Your survey does not meet the criteria for an academic one as you've asked questions about hardware and working arrangements in what you first stated was a Software Survey.

    2/10 - See Me!
