Mastercam/Edge Factor Produce Multimedia Resources Package9/24
CNC Software, Inc. Partners with Edge Factor to Bring Free
Tolland, CT – CNC Software Inc., developers of Mastercam CAD/CAM software, has partnered with Edge Factor to produce a free, time-saving, turnkey package of inspiring media and interactive resources. The Rock MFG Day Kit will help make events more compelling, engaging, and successful.
Spurred by record-setting participation last year, many activities are in the works for Manufacturing Day 2017, scheduled for October 6, 2017—the sixth annual industry grassroots event celebrated across North America and promoted as “MFG Day.” Edge Factor has produced a virtual event package that enhances MFG DAY events and makes it as easy as possible for event coordinators to host inspiring and interactive events.
Featured in the Rock MFG DAY Kit, Edge Factor’s cinematic Reach Beyond film shares the inspiring story of students who created a part for NASA’s International Space Station. Another film, Total Overhaul, shows students how Stewart-Haas Racing used advanced technology to redesign their race car and win first place in the Daytona 500. Based on these films, plus two additional films, the kit contains interactive activities, looping videos, discussion activities, post-event parent resources, and more.
“This Manufacturing Day, we invite you to host an event and become a leader in mobilizing your manufacturing community,” said Jeremy Bout, Producer/Host of Edge Factor. “The turnkey Rock MFG DAY Kit provides you with tools to reach out to your community to change the perception of manufacturing and showcase the amazing accomplishments and people behind your shop’s doors.”
“Mastercam has partnered with Edge Factor to produce materials to inspire young people to pursue careers in the incredible world of manufacturing,” states Meghan West, President of CNC Software, Inc. “This free, online events resource kit will help manufacturers connect with leaders and students in your community to change perceptions of manufacturing, involve kids and teachers, reach parents, spark conversations, and collect meaningful feedback on the success of their events.”
CNC Software will host their open house at its manufacturing facility located at 671 Old Post Road, Tolland, CT to celebrate Manufacturing Day. The open house will be held on Friday, October 6th from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM and is open to members of the community.
