HSMWorks class at Artisan's Asylum

Recently on Fridays, I'm taking a HSMWorks class at Artisan's Asylum. HSWWorks is a plugin to SolidWorks that allows for making CAM and in this case, CNC mill operations, very easy on certain large, complex, machines.

Over the past few months, there's been significant work getting the MultiCam up and running. A lot of it by Douglas Ruuska, who now is; for all intensive purposes, the instructor and point person for the software and machine.

I'm looking to get hands on with the machine, as soon as I feel comfortable with the software half.

In case you're wondering what it looks like in SolidWorks, here are some pics.

I need to clean up the toolpaths. :)
