As hobbyist I would like to thank you for your support and co-operation and all review once again how it all began and finally it has led to a very good result. Music-,video- and photo processing along with the family tree creation on the Pc brought less and less mental work for me, a 76 years old pensioner. For all activities have been more or less a listless routine. more…
In search of a new field of activity I came across the CNC-machining, a field that was completely unknown territory but that has fascinated me extraordinarily.
But there was a lack of knowledge and experience for the remaining matter environment beginning with the milling machine up to the actual material processing. I did not enjoy a technical education but I always was a passionate hobbyist with technical interest and open for a broad range.
Daring and spontaneously I bought a milling machine with corresponding complete software for drafting and machine control. But the results obtained did not meet the expectations after months of training. Furthermore it follows for many months a never-ending checking out and training of always new Cad- and Cam programs.
Finally I came across Condacam 2.1 in autumn 2012 and that was the begin of the today´s achievements. From today´s point of view that was the magical moment of my long-standing efforts. After a short online training of 3 hours by the firm Costa data technique and much personal use can I say today If I want something to build it is exactly was I am going to realize.
