Recently Mr. Miller attended the International Manufacturing Trade Show in Chicago. While at the expo Mr. Miller met representatives from SolidCAM. After talking, SolidCAM offered to donate $10,000 worth of software and education support to the Engineering Design class. This software will be used when students design and write the code that is needed to manufacture the part on CNC Mille. Thank you SolidCAM!
