Welcome back to Orchid! I consider you one of our “elder statesmen”,
so I’m glad you’re back to share your knowledge with us. Although,
it’s been a little while since we’ve been in touch by email, I
continue to learn from your occasional posts on the Rhino and
The CAD/CAM topic has been a little quiet lately, so it’s good that
you’ve opened it up again.
Several months ago, I volunteered to help develop a CAD/CAM FAQ page
We got off to a good start, but I may have been a little grandiose
in my initial goals. As it happened, I met one of our members at the
Orchid dinner at the last MJSA show in NY, who lives in my vicinity.
We’ve been meeting and talking this summer to strategize a solid plan
to get the FAQ page rolling again. It’s part of GAP, the Ganoksin
Archive Project. There will be an annoucement regarding a new format
for the tree structure and a new call for volunteers. So, after a
period of dormancy, there will hopefully be some new activity, very
soon. Please feel free to join the project, if you wish.
Like yourself, I’m adjusting to an ever increasing workload in
conjunction with the ongoing challenge to stay abreast of emerging
developments in CAD/CAM technology. I’ve been really very fortunate
to have made a lot of great new friends through this work and I’m
very grateful to have received this opportunity to revitalize my
career as a working artisan. It all started when I stumbled upon the
Orchid List some four years ago. I hope never to forget that!
