San Diego's 5th Axis CNC
During the term of the Agreement, 5th Axis switched from using
Master Cam software to Open Mind Hyper-Mill software. The switch in software had
learning curve and the ETP funding allowed you to provide the critically needed
for the new system (off production).
They got $20,280 from the State of California for "training"
and it looks like they had been using a rather old version of MasterCAM
Manage to drill any holes yet??
BTW, News was well over a year old. Stale, in fact.
"Training began on 6/01/07."
Very interesting. Nice find Cliff!
Now that the cat is out of the bag on that... I was aware they had
been looking at NX as well. Hard to beat a deal like subsidized
training for a new system. Same reason Haas jumped on MC (though an
even better deal) - free software - free training. Funny when some
Asian company does that to the US we call it "dumping" and unfair. We
do it to ourselves and we call it shrewd business sense! <g>
Hard not to laugh at the fact that Jon obviously had no idea these
guys got $20K worth of free training.
Not too thrilled about my tax dollars paying for my competitors to
enhance their capabilities, but perhaps I'm just being hypocritical.
I'm sure I wouldn't turn away 20 grand from the state.
