VisualMILL 2012 CAM software comes in 4 different configurations to suit the varied machining needs of customers. These configurations are as follows:

VisualMILL 2012 Standard (STD)

This is a general purpose machining program targeted at the general machinist. This product
is ideal for the rapid-prototyping, hobby and educational markets where ease of use is a paramount requirement. Packed with sufficiently powerful manufacturing methods this easy to
use package is not only effective but also attractively priced for the budget conscious
or entry level buyer.

VisualMILL 2012 Expert (EXP)

This configuration allows 4th Axis Indexed and continuous roughing and finishing operations in VisualMILL 2012.

Curve based continuous machining such as
4 Axis Facing, Pocketing, Profiling & Engraving
as well as surface/solid/mesh based machining such as Roughing, Finishing and Curve Projection machining are available. This configuration includes all of the functionality included in the STD configuration.

Visual Mill 2012 Professional (PRO)

This powerful package is ideal for mold, die
and tooling, wood working rapid-prototyping and general machining markets. This product boasts of powerful toolpath generation strategies
