Hope all our readers have been busy making plenty of chips this summer! We’ve certainly been very busy here at the Tormach home office in Waunakee. Here’s a few things I ran across in the last month that I wanted to pass along.
New SprutCAM tutorial from Sprut UK
Dave from Sprut UK has a new tutorial video that shows how to create process templates in SprutCAM that can be saved and stored for use with other projects. This is a very handy trick, especially if you find yourself programming multiple parts with the same tool. Thanks Dave!
New Workshop Dates
We’ve just added Tormach Workshop dates for the remainder of 2011. They are:
-August 23-26 (CNC Fundamentals)
-September 22-23 (CNC for Beginners)
-October 18-21 (CNC Fundamentals)
-November 15-18 (CNC Fundamentals)
You can see more details about the workshops and sign up here. Classes have been filling up fast this summer and class sizes are small, so don’t wait too long if you’re interested in attending.
Another Cool Project from Barry Upson
I saw these on CNCZone a couple weeks ago and thought they would be good to repost here. Barry has been featured on our blog before for some aftermarket auto parts he makes. You can check those out here.
These videos show some really clever workholding strategies. Lots of really good ideas. Great Work Barry!
