    I want to touch on holders as someone else mentioned. They are a breeze (used to be anyway) to set up. By default mcx comes with pretty much a full library of cat40/50 and bt. Sidelock, ER collets, extended, etc. And they are super easy too edit, just click on the section and type in the new dimension and it updates in real time. Very nice for 5 axis work and 3d surfacing collision checking

    I have some Solidworks experience and I liked it very much. Most of my customers use it as well.

    I used MC a little but my computer couldnt handle it. I noticed it has "wireforms". Its going to take a little getting used to but any software will have a learning curve.

    When I draw up lathe parts its a simple 2d drawing revolved. I got that far with some chess piece parts from Titans older tutorials.

    I havent tried drawing parts up for a mill yet. Push/Pull stuff seams easy enough.

    In-House and Postability are both in Canada. Both are top notch at doing post work.

    In-House is the company that runs the eMastercam website/forum, which is by far the greatest wealth of knowledge on all things Mastercam. I'd blindly recommend any of their training materials and/or classes for someone looking to become more adept with the software. Everything they do is really well thought out and to the point.
