IT’S JOH TIME!

And no, that’s not just John’s name misspelled. The Grimsmo team took a field trip to the 2018 Joint Open House last week!  

Trip Notes:

  • Have your codes and questions ready on the cloud. There are SO many people with answers there!
  • Sweet to see an MX 330 in the flesh metal
  • Spent 5 hours at Elliott Matsuura
  • Checked out the Robodrill for a half hour

Keep an eye out for the 2018 Joint Open House video on Grimsmo’s channel!

Can’t wait? Here’s Grimsmo’s video from the 2017 Joint Open House

New machines are definitely in the cards for Grimsmo!

As a laser falls lower and lower on his list of necessities, robots seem more plausible. But could robots take over the Grimsmo shop one day? On the other hand, Saunders couldn't live without his CO2 laser! 

Either way, Grimsmo's gonna need a new machine for the PENS he's officially bringing to market! He shows Saunders the prototype pen, and plans to bring 200 to Blade Show! 

Thinking outside the box

Someone somewhere has the skills you need, don't be afraid to ask for help.  

“That’s the kind of question you need to ask yourself and the industry; here’s the job I need, is it possible? Can it be done?” - Grimsmo

IMTS IS 5 MONTHS AWAY! 

Look out for Grimsmo and Saunders as they run around learning a ton together. 

Grimsmo hiring again?? 

A sixth person is coming to work at the Grimsmo shop for a co-op placement, he's a manufacturing engineering student.

The Irony of Capitalism; "The more successful you are, the better financing is" - Saunders

Saunders reflects on staying competitive. 

Do you remember contour? No? That's because GoPro beat the marketing battle. 

 

 

Everything’s always improving, and software is no different. Grimsmo and Saunders discuss what they’d change about Fusion. What would you?
