Mastercam Education Summit – A Resounding Success!


The survey results are in, and the 2018 Mastercam Education Summit was a huge success. This was an opportunity for educators, industry professionals, and Mastercam experts to discuss strategies for improving technical education with Mastercam and to explore the latest developments in Mastercam 2019. CNC Software, Inc. was honored to host this talented group of professionals and support their commitment to preparing students for careers in manufacturing.


It was informative—and a lot of fun—to network with attendees from Illinois, Indiana, New York, Oregon, Connecticut, Washington, Michigan, Kentucky, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Hampshire, and Ontario. Based on survey results, “Mill 2D and 3D Hands-on Workshop,” “Mastercam User Experience,” and “Masters of CAM & Wildest Parts” were favorites, and the session that ranked highest was “What’s New in Mastercam 2019.”

Educators in attendance were generous in sharing feedback about the value of their experience at Education Summit! Here’s a sample in their own words:

“It was exciting to see all the changes and improvements that are coming!”

“All sessions were very informative and well presented.”

“I appreciated both the information on training and resources for my students as well as the advanced topics in machining.”

“The whole time spent was well worth it! It was a wide range of information which makes all of us instructors better at what we do.”

“It was a great experience, and I look forward to the event next year!”

“I enjoy getting different perspectives from other very experienced Mastercam users you have at CNC Software. They always answer questions without hesitation.”

“I learned some tips and tricks and how to explain some of the new features in Mastercam 2019.”

“Mastercam is found in more places of employment in Connecticut than other software that I know of and therefore, having it in the shop at my school gives students the introduction to something they will more than likely find in industry.”

“I am able to bring back a different perspective to the classroom with what I learned and experienced.”

Thank you to everyone that joined us for Mastercam Education Summit at CNC Software headquarters. We appreciate your commitment to Shaping the Future of Manufacturing and helping students succeed with Mastercam. We look forward to working with you long into the future – and seeing you next year!
