I use TopSolid, Mastercam, Solidworks, Vericut, and Cimco products.
I was a Mastercam technical support rep until politics got in the way.
Trained at CGTech (Irvine CA), in Vericut, CNC Software (Tolland CT) in Mastercam, and trained in 5 axis and Mill Turn at the Okuma Thinc facility in Charlotte NC, and experienced in programming 3/4 and 5 axis machines. I've programmed Okuma, Fanuc, Mitsubishi Heidenhain and Siemens controls. Lathes, Mills, Mill Turns, and programmed Renishaw probes. I have also programmed Fanuc Custom Macros and Okuma User Task, including complex probing routines.
I've created/modified numerous post processors, and created numerous Vericut machine and control files.
Previously, I have been a college tutor in CAD/CAM, a technical support rep for a cutting tool company, machine operator, CNC programmer, and CNC Programming Office Manager. I am currently a CNC Manager, handling product design, die design, programming, and tooling management.
I like mountain biking, travel, music and movies.
Oh, and Mexican food
