CNC Educators across North America will be meeting up in Auburn, Maine this week for the annual HTEC Americas: A CNC Educator Training Conference billed as “The Next Dynamic Decade: Making Complicated Easy.” From July 18 – 21 at Central Maine Community College, this is the 10th HTEC Americas Conference to date. CNC Software, Inc. will be on hand for multiple sessions throughout the week aimed at providing instructors with the tool they need to prepare their students for entering the workforce.
We’ll have a second breakout on Wednesday where Chad Chmura will spotlight a turbo elbow project he’s been working on. A turbo elbow directs engine exhaust gas into a race car’s turbocharger. A customer approached Mastercam Applications Engineer, Chad Chmura, with a turbo elbow they had created by welding pieces of pipe together looking for a better way to make turbo elbows. Given this challenge, Chad jumped at the chance to create something that would fit all of the part’s design constraints including fitment and structural stability that would also be optimized in terms of airflow and appearance. Chad will walk you through the process he used to reverse engineer the part using Master3DGage and Verisurf, modeling the part in Mastercam using traditional and direct modeling with the Push/Pull functionality, Dynamic roughing, Port Expert, and Multiaxis finishing to ensure a completely finished part. Come see the results and the stunning improvement over the original welded part! ‘
The next generation of Mastercam is here, and with it comes a new suite of programming tools focused on delivering speed, automation, and efficiency for all machining jobs. You’ll enjoy a more streamlined workflow, improved usability, enhancements to our Dynamic Motion technology, and much more. We’ve listened to feedback through our Public Beta testing cycles, and are excited to bring to you the next installation of the world’s leading CAD/CAM Software. Here’s a glimpse of what Mastercam 2017 has to offer, and for more you can visit whatsnew.mastercam.com.
In an industry that has seen a lot of consolidation in the past few years, we’ve stayed true to our values and with that comes the recognition of the importance of partnerships, community building, and family. Since 2009, every June we’ve hosted a Connecticut SOLIDWORKS User Group meeting at our Corporate Headquarters in Tolland, CT, and every year the attendance has grown.
This year was especially important, because SOLIDWORKS CEO Gian Paolo Bassi was in attendance and gave a spectacular presentation! Before the event, the SW team came in and met with our company officers for a meeting and discussed ways to strengthen our partnership moving forward. We’re excited for an enhanced collaboration moving forward.
