    Awesome! I had a sneaking suspicion OS was going to buy CloudMilling, when there were no updates from its developer for a while...

    I will finally be able to rid myself of that other CAD system!

    IMO, if you include this (but somewhat limited in some way) in the hobby version, it will grow OS quite a bit amongst the hobby users, which may lead to more Basic and Professional sales.

    This is amazing.
    Any plans for woodworking features like nesting and working across multiple sheets?
    How can we learn more about it?

    This is fantastic news....can't wait

    With Onshape CAM coming, let's not forget about the users needing 2D CAM (laser,water jet, plasma) side of things along with nesting.

    Intriguing, How will post processors work? Who will be writing those?

    Eventually with nesting!! now that's what I'm talking about!!

    Not nesting parts, but nesting toolpaths would be nice
  • joepjoep Member Posts: 17 PRO
    That is great news! Curious if it can be used in both part studio and assembly environment.

    Nesting parts and the work across multiple sheets is critical in CAM for cabinet making

    @joep. CAM Studio will support assemblies and Part Studio.  Fixturing, machine simulation, and more... The product already supports multipart machining. This was one of the more interesting aspects of Cloud Milling.

    Excellent!

    Will this feature be available in edu or is it restricted to pro only like the rendering feature?

    Not to mention the ability to both learn it and then demo it to your boss so they might finally buy a license to OnShape.

    That's actually how my company bought OS. I played around with the free version for a few weeks on my own. I ended up really liking it, then I showed it to the boss and we bought a couple of licenses.

    With new CAM programs, CNC Lathes always end up forgotten. The emphasis always seems to be on milling.

    To echo NikNYC's comment will CAM studios be restricted to pro licenses, I know there teams at my school that do cad in onshape but are forced to export to fusion 360 for CAM at the moment, would be fantastic if we and teams like use were able to do everything in one ecosystem, looks super cool otherwise, looking forward to it!!!
