    I was in charge of several CNC machines, proposals, reverse engineering, CMM control, creating new applications, etc. It was also in this factory that I started with PPs development for Camworks.
    Curious fact: My first PP was made in excel for creating worm screws for carrying bottles in the alimentary industry. With very simple inputs like max diameter, hub diameter, bottle diameter, entrance and exit pitch, tool used, I was able to get gcode that ran perfectly. 1 minute and that was it. With Camworks back then it took much more time to program and to execute the part (due to unnecessary movements).
