    If this goes well, what is stopping CNC machine makers forcing businesses to buy a "seat" for each CNC machine operator.

    That's exactly the point. How much 'pay per use' is this industry willing to put up with. Autodesk is trying to find out and it seems like lots are ok with this and probably much more. If their model continues with success, many more will follow.

    Isn't all business travel "business-critical" ??

    Does this mean all "junket travel" is now off the table?

    Is that a rhetorical question?

    Cincinnati did this back in the 90's on machines with the A-2100. The first few I bought had featurecam on the control as an option. I opted for it thinking it would be dongle protected and I could move from machine to computer. Nope, it was imbedded into the control software.

    And that's when I learned programming at the control cost money. One guy jockeying parts and adjusting comps while another guy was trying to write a program. It would really suck if MTB's forced this on machines. That would be like having Mazak or Hurco with no EAI capability.

    Wonder what this means for HSMWorks?

    From their site: "Continue to renew, and we will communicate as additional information becomes available."

    Translation: Keep giving us money and we'll let you know when we decide to screw you some more!

    Bastards.

    Yeah...I was able to jump on their Fusion/HSM for Solidworks deal and was thrilled. Just wondering how long it will keep going.

    I'm fairly new to CAM, but a veteran in Inventor. Today I was flabbergasted to see that HSM does not know what an index drill is.
    There is no option for making one in the tool library. One can cheat and tell HSM that the index drill is a boring bar, but that's a collision waiting to happen - no thanks.
    AD HSM forum shows that users have been requesting this "fix" for years with no action taken by AD.
    If only Inventor wasn't so damn good...

    Here's a link to the thread and my rant..
