New Menus

on Sat, Oct 20, 2007 in development

Looking at the competition I’ve come to the realization that it’s changed in the last 3-4 years. When MeshCAM was started the existing programs were pretty ugly and didn’t work too well, or at least they weren’t actively in development. Now that others have joined the market it’s time to review the status of MeshCAM. For the money it’s probably the most full-featured product available but it doesn’t compare as well in the attractiveness category. I’ve started adding a new menu interface following the now common “left-panel interface.” I’ve got it working and I’ve already gotten used to having the commands available without using the menus.

Normally I would dislike this kind of upgrade because it doesn’t make the toolpaths any better. This time I’m enjoying it because I think the changes will make it much easier for new users to get up and running quickly.
