The cnc machines/programs come in different grades and older machines vs the newer versions.So the end result can be very different.The better machines with 5 axis porting are the better machines and can cost $250,000 on up.And the end result is a faster production time and is exact same result port to port. The better programs have the ability to do simulated porting and then apply that to a test mule for testing.Guys say cnc porting isn't worth the costs because it still requires a human to do the input into the program.No truer word could be spoken.It is that position that supports to purchase from a known name brand company that has been at this first old school way and now using top of the line cnc processes.It's that experience that counts.It's the same as it as has always been.How cheap and how good never mates up.
