metal cube made with bobcad cnc softwareJames Shorkey is a longtime manual machinist in Colorado that is turning a new leaf and conforming to CNC machining. That’s why he got BobCAD for him and his intern. In a twist of irony, his new intern is teaching him about CNC machining while James is teaching him some manual machining. “My intern uses both BobCAD & Solidworks. I am getting better with my BobCAD-CAM software all the time, learning tricks, watching the tutorials. I think in a few years here I will have it mastered. I do a lot of work for the students with their research projects. There was another shop (in town), but it’s now an empty building because the owner retired. I drive BobCAD on a Bridgeport Mill with a Fadal control & in a couple of weeks, I’m getting a Ganesh CNC 2 axis Lathe with Fadal as well. We generate drawings and also take student drawings (importing them into Solidworks), using BobCAM to create programs, edit programs & run simulation. If it all runs smoothly on the computer screen then we are golden,” says James.
