    School Project

    I'm taking a CNC course in my mechanical engineering program, and need some help for a final project.

    We've been assigned to price out equipment and installation of two CNC machines (one lathe and one mill) to produce an assortment of parts for a simulated shop (the parts dicated the machines we chose). This includes the cost of the machines, delivery, qualified installation and a software package among other things.

    There are a lot more details (please ask if you need), but my group is having some trouble when it comes to choosing and pricing out software. In our labs we use a MasterCAM software package to design for both the CNC lathe and mill at our school.

    This is along the same lines as the package I would like to use for this project. I understand that you can't just go to mastercam.com and click 'buy', but I'm having trouble finding prices anywhere.

    I got a range of 3000-12000 USD so far (and I may already be off), but I need to refine this.

    Any input would be most appreciated!
