After years of research at the HURCO Center of Machining Technology Advancement in Indianapolis, Indiana, they are releasing a huge advancement for solid model and 3D DXF users. The HURCO control is now capable of importing a solid model or a 3D DXF and then creating a conversational program from that model. All it takes is a couple of clicks on the feature you want to machine, tell the machine what tool you want to use, and then hit the green button. Please watch the video for an actual demo.
