Hi,
    My name is Alan or Al. I've worked as a machinist for 38 years, mostly on manuals but have written programs and operated cnc machines from time to time. I've currently been asked by my boss to set up and program two Okuma lathes for a new production job in our shop. He said they were cnc lathes,but when they arrived I saw that they were actually older machines. The tape readers gave it away.Anyway, I've been searching the web for about a week now, looking for a cam program that would be compatable with these machines, and have some support and training to get up and running in a reasonable amount of time. I came across the ArtSoft site and I've been here for five days now. I downloaded the demo and have been playing with it for a few days. I think it's GREAT! Looking forward to meeting other members, and reading everyone's comments.
                                                                                                                                                                                           Thanks for being there,
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Al

Hello all,
I am a mechanical design engineer using solidworks within a process automation company. I have always had an interest in Cad Cam and also PLC, my lovely wife bought me a 4 axis breakout board complete with power supply and stepper motors for Christmas this year so I have built MkI of my CNC router and have it working with Mach 3 in demo mode, I will need some help getting my home switches going. I am looking forward to buying the full version of Mach 3 so I can unleash the potential of Paul4865 MkI router
