I'm looking at buying an entry level VMC to make mostly 2D die die components. I had originally budgeted for a standalone software, like MasterCam (or something similar) for programming, but the Hurco salesman is pumping up the WinMax control saying that it's all we should need. After watching some YouTube videos, it looks like the WInMax is very basic and doesn't look at the stock as a boundary which would require us to offset the geometry out for every roughing pass when making a boss type of feature... is that correct? if the feture is off center I have to imaging that you'd be cutting as much air as you are the material, right? Also, are there any options for Z ramping, or dies it plunge straight down into the material?
