How to get ArtCAM

According to the Autodesk website, Art CAM is no longer available. Is there a way to get it legally? I have seen a lot of people out there over a package with a "Crack". Not sure this is right.

What would be nice is if Autodesk would offer a package that assumes no support and you keep the software without using the cloud.

Thanks,

Dan

Dan and Mike,

I've used Fusion 360 for it's CAM function. It's very capable. It has a "learning curve".

Thanks guys,

I recently loaded Fusion 360 and I am in the process of learning it. It is a powerful program. As far as I know, it is only free for one or three years (to hobbyist and students). After that it will be around the $300 / year range. That still is not bad for what it can do.

I was more interested in Artcam for it's ability to take a picture format and create a 3D model which can then be manipulated into a CAM file and then G-code.

I am not far enough along in fusion to know if it can do the same thing. Anyone out there know the answer to that?

Thanks,
Dan

If looking into similar software to ArtCam then look at Vectric Aspire
