What are my options with Rhino and MadCam on a Mac.
I have MadCam 4.3 and Rhino 4.0. The upgrade path for both is very reasonable to go to the highest version on a Windows box, but is NOT when going to a Mac. Going to Mac means buying new software basically.
Does anyone have another idea? I really hate to just trash the software and the computer it’s running on. I paid like $1,800.00 for both pieces of software, and another $500 for the PC.
The upgrade paths for both are $495 for Rhino 4.0 to Rhino 5.0, and $295 for MadCam 4.3 to 5.0. If I go MAC versions of both I’m looking at $2000, compared to $800 for the upgrades. I am half temped to see if I can sell the PC, MadCam 4.3, and Rhino 4.0 to someone and let them decide to upgrade or not. Then I would just go out and get Rhino 5.0 for the Mac and MadCam 5.0 for the Mac.
Any other options?
