BobCAD customers are always doing amazing things with their software and Jimmy Zukauska is living proof. He works for Machining Concepts Inc., located in Blaine, Minnesota. They are a smaller machine shop that does a lot of different prototype parts from various fields. Jobs range from medium to short-run production jobs. Jimmy says, “We use V31 3 Axis Pro in our shop to program 3 Axis Vertical Mills and 2 Axis Lathes. Hoping to get a 5 Axis Mill sometime. We work with common materials when machining, like steel, stainless, plastic and different grades of aluminum. As I mentioned before, we do a lot of jobs related to various fields.”

Just the other day, I had to look into undercut surfacing.” Curious, I asked him what led him to BobCAD-CAM and if we were the only CAM system he has had to learn on. Jimmy told me, “I initially learned on a very old & out-dated system. Switching from that to BobCAD’s CNC software was amazing. But, to be honest, I’m still happy I had to learn on the old system. It made you think more. You had to think about every move. With BobCAD, it’s FUN designing and programming (parts).”

Moving further into our conversation, Jimmy began to tell me how our software has been influential in his process of becoming a knowledgeable & experienced machinist. “BobCAD-CAM made me a better machinist. I was able to do things I never could before. We have yet to turn down a job because we couldn’t program a complicated part. BobCAD has been great for our shop and has many features I love,” says Jimmy.

As or time began to wind down, Jimmy had just one last thing to say for people that haven’t had a chance to experience BobCAD’s CAM software firsthand: “We have only had 1 other CAD-CAM system in our shop. BobCAD is the top-of-the-line in my opinion… I’ve been able to learn just about everything I need to know by watching BobCAD’s Youtube videos and joining online help groups (Facebook groups). Customer support has also been really great,” says Jimmy. What a strong testament to not only the wonderful things that BobCAD-CAM software can accomplish but also the hard work put in by everyone in our building.
