    Default Wire software... - peps? fanuc cam-i blows......

    Hi!
    I am new to this wire edm business and have no real idea what software to run for the cam stuff. Normally I am a very happy Siemens NX user for general cnc cad/cam operations but this has no real developed wire functions at the moment. I tried the Fanuc cam-i software and to say I am not impressed is an understatement. Very buggy and a real pain to use. I hear many guys run Camtek PEPS and I am thinking I will give it a go. Any feedback? Any happy peps users? Any happy cam-i customers?

    cheers,
    James

    I've used Peps and Opticam. Not impressed.Changed to ficus by Metalcam and love it! It's amazingly fast and easy. Call Kieth at 770 560 7996. No affiliation, but his support is superb!

    Esprit by DP technologies is still recognized as the best by mwah.
    Big bucks though... Only recommend the investment if you plan on doing a lot of 4-axis.
