Update 7-16-2009 I mistakenly wrote you had to be a paying subscriber to access the Solidworks forum, that is not true!
A couple of cool CAD and CAM related places on the web you might enjoy along with a cup of coffee.
A online TV station dedicated to show CAM software thundering G-code into cool shapes and make profitable companies. Is this cheap advertising ? Absolutely, but still a cool idea, and always good to get a sneak peak at what others are doing. DelcamTv
Real cost benefits from automated CAM/CAD
Sescoi (WorkNC) has put together a handy little 6 page pdf pointing out the benefits of CAM instead of programing at the machine itself. It was of course written with WorkNC in mind, but I will say you could replace WorkNC with any major CAM developer and it still would be true, ohhh and it contains a colorful chart that could come in handy when upper management are asking why the company are not eliminating your position and program at the machine.

Need to find a job?
Tenlinks announced that they are relaunching CADtalent.com, a job directory devoted to CAD, CAM and CAE professionals.
InHouse Solution has gotten there eStore up and running, books, shirts and pens are now available for purchase. Funny thing is that people have been screaming about this for years on emastercams forum, but either people have not realized it is now open, or when time is to show the wallet people got quite.
2D is for sissies
Talking about shopping, why not check out the new SWGeeks Store. Though the product has the Solidworks logo on it, I think everyone who works on a software that can extrude a solid would agree “2D is for sissies” and all the profits will go to the Orangewood Children’s Foundation, so there is no excuse.
More coffee anyone?
