Below are some pictures I took of the event, in no particular order. The first is the HQ for the event where the vendors were housed, where you registered for sessions, and just hung out. There were a couple of classrooms here, as well as in other buildings on the campus.
The second is Helmut (? sorry, Helmut, didn't get the last name) with his remarkable home built wire EDM CNC controlled cutter.
Third, shot of the Novakon guys.
Fourth, some Artsoft folks - the blurry guy on the left is the retired Art Fenerty and the guy on the right is David Bagby, to whom all Mach users will soon owe a debt of gratitude for having created and documented the new 3.4 screen set. He showed the UI to us in a packed session, and it looks great.
Next is Randy Ray of Texas Micro who had a kit version of his pendant which may be shipping soon.
Next is the Tormach guys.
More on next post.
