Add a machine profile for an MT 1036 Bed Mill?


I am looking as a hobbist / professional for information on CNC software  I am only senior machinist because i am the only one  in the  company, and i own the  company Lol. We are looking at moving up to a cnc  machine made  by Detroit machine tools. It is the MT 1036 bed mill. I am wondering if you have this machine listed in your program or if you can add it after the fact? This information will help me to make a decision as to  what  software and hardware we will buy. I am  really only a  hobbyist with a manual lathe. In fact it is a 1947 South Bend  9A that i have completely restored. It came to me in parts and completely non working, with broken and missing parts. Now it  runs every day making parts that we use in our frame  building business. Some day i will want a bigger and better lathe  but for now this one will do,  but we really  do need a cnc machine that will make certain parts we  now need a lot of. The  Detroit machine tools bed mill will do what  we need and more  for what  we consider a good price .     BUT!!!     I want to make  sure i am not going to buy something no program supports. It uses seimens controls so that seems good . This is the linkto the machine website. the actual machine is  MT-1036 which is the upgraded version of the 32 with more horsepower and such. thank you for your time. Also if you have an opinion on this  machine itself i would be interested. Thanks again.

Robert, you can easily create a Machine Profile for the physical parameters of the MT 10356 mill.

We have partial support with Siemens that should be fine for use with CAM software.
