CNC Partners with Edge Factor for Manufacturing Day

Mastercam_logoTOLLAND, CT, Sep 30, 2016 – CNC Software Inc., developers of Mastercam CAD/CAM software, has partnered with Edge Factor to produce a professional, time-saving, turnkey package of exciting media and interactive resources, called the Rock MFG Day Kit, to help make events compelling, engaging, and successful.


Spurred by record-setting participation last year, many activities are in the works for Manufacturing Day 2016, scheduled for October 7, 2016—the fifth annual industry grassroots event that is celebrated across North America and being promoted as “MFG Day.” Edge Factor has joined the organizers of Manufacturing Day as the Strategic Content Partner; creating 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 Behind Closed Doors film weaves inspirational stories of women and men using advanced manufacturing technology to push back the edge of what’s possible. Based on the film, the kit contains interactive activities, CNC machining and 3D printing projects, looping videos, discussion activities, a customizable slideshow presentation, 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 7th from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM and is open to members of the community.
