Not really about SprutCAM, but I thought that some of the hobby machinists and students my be interested in getting your hands on a FREE bit of parametric 3D CAD software.
It's from ASCON who are based in St Petersburg Russia, and they have released a free version for non-commercial use.

You can find out more & download it here

Hi David, I'm not sure.....I am running the full version and that has many export formats available.

Let me know what you think of it.

Looks like a cool program. Doesnt appear you can save or export any format in the free version though.

Thanks, David

FWIW, I'm using the retail Alibre (the Pro version) and it seems to be working pretty well with SC 2007. Sprut has an add-in for Alibre that lets you go directly from the part in Alibre to SprutCAM, which saves manually exporting the part in Alibre and then importing it into SprutCAM. There were some add-in issues previously with SC4 and circular features, but it looks like Alibre or Sprut has fixed them.
