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.
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:
AGREE / NOT AGREE / NEITHER
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 ?

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!
