We are very excited and proud to announce that we have been named #1 Mastercam Reseller in the world. We would just like to thank our entire customer base for helping us to make this possible.
Formlabs just announced their latest new engineering resin. This soft engineering resin (50A Shore durometer) is suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone that need to bend, stretch and compress. Due to its high elongation (160%) and good tear strength (19.1kN/m) it will hold up to repeated cycles without tearing. Elastic resin is also translucent which is ideal for healthcare and medical applications where visual simulation is required.

Mastercam Lathe 2019 includes many new enhancements that will make your programming faster and easier. Mastercam now allows you to build tools from 3D STEP models using the new Tool Designer, a function panel with tab-style navigation, providing a structured workflow that is similar to using a wizard. You can define tools, assign them to operations, and view them when running Classic Backplot and Mastercam Simulator. Support for cross-centerline turning has been improved. When you select a tool or turret that is across the centerline from the chained geometry, Mastercam reverses the spindle direction of the operation. It also includes [...]
Mastercam 2019 includes many new features and enhancements to the milling and routing side of the software. General Improvements Accelerated Finishing technology addresses today’s finishing tool geometries and processes, resulting in greater efficiency and higher machining productivity when using Mill. Two new tool types, Lens Form and Taper Form, have been added, and Barrel Mill has been moved to the Accelerated Finishing group, with additional variations of this shape now available. Skip Pocket Smaller Than is a new parameter that allows you to skip pockets based on a tool diameter percent, rather than by entering a dedicated size of the [...]
We want to share this information because the window is soon closing on the opportunity to get up to $250,000 in cash rebates for startups purchasing new equipment. This equipment includes 3D printing equipment, materials, and service providers. The following article was written by Charles Goulding & Raymond Kumar of www.rdtaxsavers.com. 3D printing is poised to become an integral component of production in a variety of industries, ranging from traditional manufacturing and food processing to laboratories and architectural design. Reasons for integrating 3D printing include cost-reduction, increased efficiencies, and better methods for prototyping. Startups not only developing 3D printers but [...]
Rize just announced their newest product, the XRIZE. The new XRIZE™ 3D printer will enable users to manufacture functional polymer and composite parts in full color. Like RIZE's first product, RIZE™ ONE, the experience of using the XRIZE 3D printer is as easy and safe as an office 2D printer. XRIZE will enable full-color prototypes for FEA and stress analysis, tooling with safety instructions, consumer products, package design, GIS mapping, anatomical parts for patient/clinician communication, pre-surgical planning and parts for marketing and the entertainment industry. XRIZE will be available for shipping in H1 2019 and will be priced at USD [...]
The Advanced Manufacturing Expo has become the region’s largest conference for learning about the latest manufacturing technologies. This expo has been growing over 50% per year, with over 600 participants last year, and there was no indication that the increase in attendance was going to slow down. In order to keep up with this growth, we have decided to take a step back and postpone the 2018 event. There are many reasons that we have decided to postpone, but the primary reason is that the demands on our team have increased exponentially due to our rapid growth and our change [...]
