    Default Looking for a CNC'er who's also a capable Swift or Javascript developer

    Hi everyone! I'm working on a web service to help CNC shops of all sizes with some of the more tedious aspects of CNC. It's early prototype days, so I don't want to reveal what the service is yet, but I'm looking for help getting the prototype up and running.

    My background: I'm an EECS grad and professional software developer by day. I currently write iOS apps, but have done the gamut: server, embedded, linux, etc. Several years ago I decided I wanted a CNC mill and bought a Tormach PCNC1100. Then I bought their lathe, then I built a 4'x9' CNC router based on an AvidCNC platform (with my own LinuxCNC-based controller and ClearPath servos).

    I lost my job a few weeks ago due to COVID, and decided now is as good a time as any to create this service. It's an idea I've had ever since the fist few weeks using the PCNC1100, and I think it will help us all a lot.

    I'm looking for someone who's passionate about CNC and software development, and would be interested in helping out in these early days. It would be for equity, as I barely have enough money to pay rent for the duration of this effort.

    It's such a niche, but surely there's someone else out there like me (experienced software developer with substantial passion for and experience with CNC)? Hard to know how to find them, though. Figured posting here might help.

    Thanks!

    " I'm looking for someone who's passionate about CNC and software development, and would be interested in helping out in these early days"

    Send me a PM with phone number and we can communicate.
    I can help you find direction.

    My first class in Numerical Control was in Sept 68'
    I had PHD's of math and computer sci at the end of my phone. BC and BPC's
    I am a machinist by trade Assoc. Arts . With higher education than most in the trades.

    Still do not know everything, but working on it.
    What do you want to do in this field? Make $$ or get a PHD?
    I have worked with cad/cam developers since 1970,
    when i saw a line terminated and a circle terminated to an arc.
    on a screen.
    I have since used this thousands of times making things real from other's imaginations.
    Taught the field to many.
    And do remember we went to the moon with pencils, Fortran code, on mainframes. magnetic tape and
    Vac tubes. Really did this.

    This idea is very good, I will not argue. However, all that I know about programming tells me that such software requires a lot of time and funding. Do you have a preliminary contract with some company? If you want to create everything alone, then you need at least a good example of source code. I can advise you to come here. These are examples from the portfolio of a major Canadian developer. Maybe you will like some of their ideas.
