CNC Software Inc., developers of Mastercam, has launched Masters of CAM, a new website dedicated to its CAD/CAM users as a community. Masters of CAM is a content-driven platform for Mastercam users to post stories of their skills and accomplishments. It is designed to develop as a hub for anyone with an interest in manufacturing.

In addition to user-generated content, Masters of CAM includes Featured Stories produced by the company. These videos present people and organizations that have had inspiring experiences as Mastercam users. In the future, compelling stories submitted through Masters of CAM will be considered for development into additional Featured Stories content.

“2018 has been a monumental year for Mastercam,” says Marketing Manager Graham Hargreaves. “We’ve celebrated 35 years in business and our 250,000th installation, further solidifying Mastercam as the most widely used CAD/CAM software in the world. As we sit back and look at what has driven the success of our product through the years, we realized it’s one thing: our users. If it weren’t for our global community, we’d be nowhere.”

The company says it started Masters of CAM to give back to its community. “We want to give our users a chance to show off the amazing work they do with Mastercam. Mastersofcam.com does just that. By showcasing their amazing work, the world can see how people using Mastercam are shaping the future of manufacturing,” Mr. Hargreaves continues.

Industry professionals, students and educators in the Mastercam community are encouraged to join Masters of CAM and share their experiences. Templates will guide story submissions on Masters of CAM. The first template available is “What Makes You a Master of CAM?” The Masters of CAM platform will grow with additional templates open to all users. It will also include templates for submissions from participants in contests hosted or sponsored by CNC Software.
