I am needed to re-locate to So Cal due to family reasons. I currently manage a shop in AZ with 8 employees do all the programming and most of the set-up on both lathes and mills. For cad work I use MC9 and a little bit of solid works. If you think I can help your shop grow send me a PM.
Learn solid works in and out, take the lessons they provide on the program you will be much more valuable and have more opportunities for employment.
