Thats kinda funny(not). We solid model every single electrode we make. Even
if its...a diameter. I'd say 70% of the time it is wasted time. It makes you
feel stupid to model a square. Then make setup sheets, inspection sheets,
etc... export to a cam cut a damn square.

LOL...............funny little man.......
Jon, you are a machine operator who picked up some buzzwords while recently trying to learn SolidWorks. You are posing as an expert where all you are is a beginner who is copying buzzwords and parroting* what you read and watched videos of.

Matt Lombard, author SolidWorks 2007 Bible to Jon Banquer "I prefer a rational discussion between people who really use the software. You prove on a regular basis that you can't be rational, and you have never said anything that makes me believe you have more than a passing familiarity with SolidWorks." - Matt Lombard, author - SolidWorks 2007 Bible - Aug 19, 2007 -
To repeat or imitate, especially without understanding.

I am seeing a common thread, are you the one that left this gem on the Novedge blog?

All you do is post your crib notes Jon.
Would that be before or after I made the recommendation you use it at your new job?
I said I never had a problem hiring machinist in San Diego and I was in charge and actually hiring the machinists.
I worked in San Diego and lived there during the work week.
On a limited basis I do.
LOL, coming from a machine operator masquerading as a SolidWorks expert (eggspurt).

Not much as I'd like to take the credit, it wasn't my post. Ya know, I always believed that Folini just did that interview as a joke for everyones entertainment and jonnie just ate it up thinkin the guy was serious. I mean....why interview a "machine operator" after the list of CEO's, CAD/CAM specialists, etc. he normally interviews. I picture Folini askin questions and doin everything possible to keep from laughin and pissin himself.
On the other hand... I agree with the statement above though, jonnie is a breath of fresh air for me. He's gotta be the funniest dude in here....well....except for PV when he calls BD a "prick" all the time. Don't know why but that really cracks me up.

No SolidWorks required Jon and unlike yourself, I don't hold myself out as an expert unless I actually know something about the subject. Vero has an Electrode Manager that is very complete and it's my tool of choice for that sort of thing.
I model assemblies in CATIA, not SolidWorks, and I'm glad I skipped the step that using SolidWorks would have represented.
There isn't anything to realize beyond the fact that you are a complete k00k. You have managed to remove all doubt in that regard so it isn't an epiphany.
