Does anyone have or know of any companies that can upgrade or sell Sum3d (other than Uncle Hank)? Have you used this company, thoughts?

Millbox uses it sort of baked into the background. lots of places sell millbox. the guy who was a programmer for sum3d used to be on the boards here but i don't know where he went.

Is millbox separate from sum3d or do you have to purchase both of them?

with millbox you buy it and you get sum3d, think of millbox like a really nice User Interface for sum3d.

Ahhh, gotcha!!! I had a quote from Uncle Hank of $3,500 for both but they want to slap that additional $199/month crap on it if you purchase it. Hence why I'm looking.

I'll admit i've never been fond of or good at sum3d. i'm sure there are some others here that can help you better.

It's not my favorite either but with the new versions of exocad the older versions of sum3d aren't really compatible anymore. It can still be done but you have to use workarounds and such...I'm trying to eliminate some of my headaches and streamline certain things. No worries though, next mill will be using hyperdent. ;)

I have an outdated version of Sum3D (so I was told by tech support) and that I can upgrade to Millbox. I have no idea what the cost would be, as I couldn't find anyone that could tell me. Hopefully Sum3D doesn't **** out on me.

I have new 2020 millbox and it is pure crap. It does not detect, similarly to 2017 version, screw retained crowns holes when screw holes are manually created. Also today I was unable to mark manually angulated screw hole at all with or without the constructionInfo. Got it eventually done with older version that I did not remove or over install. My reseller also has a feeling it is not a full stable version. At first it did not use smaller than 1 mm tools in milling and after an update patch it suddenly did. The overall interface is a lot slower also. I updated in order to get my new exocad files accepted but have been disappointed.
