CAM Software for ProE

Right now we are using Mastercam for CAM, but we are looking for a CAM software that integrates with ProE, so that we can eliminate file translations. I know of Pro-NC and Hypermill. Are there any other good packages available? And does anyone have any experiences with these, good or bad?

Hello, As I heard from my colleagues, ProNC is one of the best CNC module. There is also the Vericut module to check your toolpaths, ...

Hello I user of Pro/NC, for me that is best, but I am learning. If your hear anything, let me know, send me please. Thanks & Regards

I use GibbsCAM with Pro/e files though you need to purchase the Granite translator module from them. They are beefing up their surfacing routines for a fall release of GibbsCAM 2008, which will put the capabilities more in line with Pro/NC.

I suggest learning and utilizing ProNC as a cam package. Pro NC will ave a little higher learning curve since it resembles the file architecture of Pro E 2001, but if you are considering keeping with Pro E as a cad packege this can't be beat. You can keep part and tool paths parametric, without any loss of translation.

Model translate the painful experience for all users. And if you are doing frequent prototyping by modify the model, trail-and-error (generally it is a product R&D/research and development steps)and fine tune the output, packaged ProNC with the proE is the only choice if you use ProE as the design module.
