     It's a simulation software for 5 axis milling machine. I'm using OpenGL library and especially the function glGetDoublev glgModelViewMatrix, Matrix(1) to get back the Opengl matrix. Tool and tool holder are created via standard Opengl function like gluSphere, gluDisk,and gluCylinder .. The elements of the milling machines are created via STL ascii file and you will find in the source code some samples of ISO code and STL part. I'm sorry because all the code and comments are in french but if I have any time and if someone is interresting I will try to translate the code in english. It's of course a Beta release full of bugs and limitations. You can find the zip file at : Just some informations concerning the dynamic manipulation Clic on the PictureBox with the left button to move the machine. The zoom function is attached to the right button. Press the shift key + the left button it's a rotation against X and Y Shift key + right button = rotation against Z axis Regards
