Is there anything better than Mastercam to run with Inventor parts.

We bought a new HASS CNC lathe and mill, but we are a sheet metal shop. The
learning curve is about 5 degrees from horizontal.

Thanks

Look into GibbsCAM. Works great with Inventor.
We were very impressed with it.

Checkout http://www.dptechnology.com/ for Esprit.

"ESPRIT is compatible with Autodesk Inventor 5.3, featuring the ability to
read native Autodesk Inventor 5.3 parts, assemblies, and drawings."

We haven't used it but are planning to get it after the first of the year.

EdgeCAM Solid Machinist for Inventor is very strong
with it's feature finder capabilty. It recognizes
features on the solid model in any coordinate plane you choose to view the inventor part. Much newer interface
and easier to use than mastercam. check it out!
