Estimating Software

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for some recommendations for Machining Estimating software. Our current system is rather cumbersome. Is anyone having good success with software that can recognize solid features and create the quote based on shop specific parameters? Thanks.

I remember seeing a program for swiss/screw machine type parts but in the end I think it was just as much work as programming the part to get the cycle time.

Thanks Dave. I would think this is a process that (I think) could be a little more automated than what we are currently doing. At least I'm hoping so.

I think you best chance would be some type of FBM to get a premininary program to know what the cycle time will be.
