As a special tutor for iMachining, there was Mickey Berman, iMachining chief scientist in SolidCAM.

Apart from having extensive training about the new functionality of SolidCAM 2011, resellers witnessed special testing of the new iMachining technology on a Hermle milling centre. Special measuring equipment proved the advantages of iMachining in maintaining a constant tool load, thus enabling a big material removal rate. The cutting has been shown at the Technology centre of the company SolidVision s.r.o., the biggest SolidWorks and SolidCAM reseller in the Czech Republic.

Emil Somekh: " The Reseller meeting was a great success by any measure. It was the longest Resellers Meeting we have ever held. It was necessary to train people in all the new functionality we put into the upcoming SolidCAM version. SolidCAM 2011 is not only about iMachining, but also about much more advanced Turning and Mill/Turn. The number of new features in SolidCAM 2011 is overwhelming."

Ivan Cimr: "With the power of the SolidCAM 2011 release and especially with iMachining, we can offer our customers the best CAM-Solution ever. Our seamless single-window integration in SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor provides our customers with the best integrated CAD/CAM solution ever. With the market situation on the rise and our powerful products, this is the best time to catch our window of opportunity."
