TOLLAND, Conn., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CNC Software, Inc., producer of Mastercam® CAD/CAM software, announces the 2014 Mastercam Innovator of the Future (IOF) national competition. This competition entices students and young adults with a real-world manufacturing challenge, celebrity judge, and a chance to win a $1,000 scholarship and a trip to the Kennedy Space Center. The competition provides instructors with a powerful motivational tool to get students excited about learning CAD/CAM and the manufacturing process.
For the 2014 competition, students are challenged to modify and machine an optic mirror design. They have two options for making the mirror: modifying the supplied part file to reduce the weight but maintain the structural integrity, or get creative with the part file using an area of the mirror to express themselves.
