We were amazed that we did not have to edit or modify a single line of code. Brandon quickly learned additional features of the software that allowed us to machine and nest parts very efficiently which allows us to cut cost ad offer our customers lower prices. Brandon routinely achieves 100% product yield!”, says Paul.
