Has anyone tried the new Vector nurbs version?

Hi Sheldon
Im using Vector XT with nurbs surfacing and the rotary option. I'm very happy with the control you have over 3D toolpaths. Options include raster(back and forth),"iso-parametric"(based on the outside shape) and following a curve(engraving). You can constrain the toolpath between two curves or within any enclosed shape.I cant compare it to any other 3D toolpathing program since it's the only one I have used.
As for the CAD side, the nurbs tools are in their infancy compared to Rhino for instance.
I use Vector for 2D drawing, Rhino for 3D drawing and Vector for toolpaths.
