Hello, My name is Steve C. AKA Airnuts. I see I am not the only one on here so that may get interesting. I have been a Bob-Cad user since it was introduced in the days of DOS. I should clarify that statement. I have owned a CNC mill since then and now own 2 of them and originally purchased Bob-Cad and several upgrades including the first windows version which is when you lost me. The one mill has not run since then and the other one was on life support and being used in a manual mode most of the time. In anticipation of getting them both working again. I bought version 29 about 5 years back and boy is it entirely different . The life situation required I postpone my plans for a season or many. Over the last 7 months or so I have now just about completely finished the conversion to Masso on the one machine and the other one is also in the works.
To say I have had my hands full would be an understatement. Between the learning curves in Masso, my particular machines which in this case is a Shizooka and a Clearman Drill master NC which had both been converted to Fanuc CNC; and Bob Cad 29 and now plus the upgrading of the post processers to marry them all together and the apparent lack of brain power that comes with some age, well, lets just say I am learning how much I don’t know. Looking forward to being here and learning from others.
You can teach some old dogs new tricks, but, it takes a lot of repetition. Regards to all and thanks.
