Tech Tuesday is a weekly blog that addresses some of the most common questions and concerns that I hear throughout the previous week from users of BobCAD’s CNC software. Both customers and future customers are more than welcome to leave a comment on what they would like to see covered for the following Tech Tuesday. If you missed last week’s Tech Tuesday, click here.
Welcome back to another wonderful edition of Tech Tuesday! More so now than ever before, we are connected all over the world with social media. This is why we created several different CNC software-related Facebook groups for people from all over to connect and share like-minded ideas, solutions, problems or projects. As we all know, time is of the essence when working on a project and if it’s outside of your support hours, what can you do? You can always turn to one of the Facebook groups listed below and get real-time answers! These groups are by no means meant to act as an extension of BobCAD-CAM’s Support Team, but they are populated and monitored by BobCAD employees, as well as machinists with many years of experience.
One of the best-kept secrets in these groups is our Facebook Live videos that are done regularly, typically addressing a comment or concern a member had in one of the discussions. Who knows, the next Facebook Live may be done after the topic you were talking about! So, come be a part of the fun and share those awesome projects you have! Learning CAD-CAM doesn’t have to be hard. Our goal for these communities is to bring people together, learn from each other, but most of all have a good time doing it. Comment away and post often; we love seeing your projects! Please be aware of and respect the rules below; we don’t want to remove anyone for abusive behavior.
