Nice, fast and intuitive.
A 2D Cad/Cam designed for simple machining operation.
ECAM is a programming system for CNC lathes and machining centers.
He combines features of CAD / CAM systems with typical features of conversational programming.
It is not necessary experience with CAD systems to use this software.
If you do not want to draw or you have already created profiles on Cad file, with eCAM you can import 2D geometry directly from DWG and DXF files.
After importing the geometry, you can apply modifiers for the translation, rotation and scale.
To simplify the drawing there is a system of snap, that allows tracing with other points already present in the drawing.
See the image on the side to better understand the concept
While drawing , holding down the [CTRL] key activate the angular snap, instead holding down the [SHIFT] key activate the grid snap.

When you need to create some g-code for a simple part like the one aside, you have basically have two option :
1) Generate it from a CAD/CAM
2) Create G-Code manually
Both of this methods have their pro and cons, with ECAM you can get the best of this 2 approaches.
This is a relatively new software . Thanks to users feedback it's becoming more stable. But new bugs can be created at every release.
Every machine can interpreter the same g-code in different way.
You need to understand clearly the meaning of the generate g-code and your responsibility check the compatibilty with your machine.
Make some dry-run test before start cutting real material, check the generate g-code step by step.
