    What do people think?
    Is it easy to learn?
    What is the documentation like?
    Are there tutorials available?
    What is the forum like for responses?

    We have Mastercam milling for our mills and I am considering AlibreCam for our lathes, which are currently using conversational programming on Fanuc controllers.

    I recently looked into it.

    We have BobCAD here and were recently considering a change in CAM software. If it were me, Fusion 360 would be the route I'd take. I did not find the AlibreCAM to be very easy/user friendly at all, and not much as far as training/resources out there. A quick Youtube search will reveal that. In the end, we chose to stay with BobCAD due to the familiarity and the new features in their latest software versus what we had been running.

    Good Luck with your decision!
