I finally decided on MadCAM based on:l9

1) What it can do per dollar spent
2) Ease of use inside of Rhino
3) Availability of tutorials and direct help from the software's creator
4) No reoccurring costs

I called up Novedge and negotiated a price after I did the full trial period.

I can't say enough good about MadCAM for Rhino 4. Jokim wrote this software for use in his own mold manufacturing business, he uses it every day to build molds for industry.

I don't have any affiliation with any of these companies other than being a very satisfied Rhino4 + MadCAM user.

I'll add a +1 to Rhino with Madcam.

I shopped and tried many others and finally ended up with those two for CNC design and machining.

I have been looking at this one- they seem really sturdy.
