  • Suggestions for training from Hexagon...

    My company just upgraded to CAD++ from CAD and would like to send me for level 2 training.

    I would like some input from anybody on the forum that had good training for PCDMIS by Hexagon. I have taken the basic class when we purchased the machine. Now I am looking for any suggestions on any specific teacher or location for the advance training? I am mostly interested in learning to scan with touch probe for reverse engineering small features in molds and dies. I would also like to understand more about alignments. For the first six months of using this machine. This forum has helped a lot with getting to understand this software. Thanks for all the help.

    Had a class (curves and surfaces)with Shawn Grady (RI FACILITY) he new his SH*T!! We coverd scanning the last half day of class. In my opinion 4 hours was not enough training on scanning . In their defence the more questions asked in class the further behind the the class gets.No doubt alot can be learned from the classmates questions though. I am in the same boat we are reverse engineering molds and thermoform trays. Doug Sjogren and Dan Jeanloz are very good with scanning as well! I believe they are located at the RI office.

      I have a Starrett as well, with cad ++

      I had all of my training at the Irvine, Ca. Hexagon location.

      Ben Sasser was my instructor for the Cad class (basic)

      Eric Hollenbeck was my instructor for Cad ++ and Advanced

      There are others there that will help you as well.

      both were very attentive to the needs of the students in the class, and I will reccommend them both highly.

      I have also had very good response from them with phone calls and emails when the need arises.

      I am sure that after your initial Cad class, your mind was reeling with all that you learned and the realization that there is a vast amount of features in PCDMIS. and as such, when you take Cad ++ you will still have that same feeling....there is SO MUCH MORE to be learned than you can possibly pick up in a week or two.

      Most of what I learned in Advanced didn't sink in untill I actually started to apply some of those "background" features....variables, templates, etc.


      bottom line for me.....if I were to be taking training again...I would go to Irvine again.

        I felt what I learned at Wixom was good, but for more focused training, try this guy. Jim Jewell knows his stuff. Working on your machine with your parts is priceless.


        Commission Jim! I want commission. LOL
        When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

          We've been sent to Michigan, Ohio & Tennessee B&S Training facilities. In my opinion, the Nashville center was much better than the other two and the nightlife was tremendously better. The 25 cent longnecks @ Grahms were pretty swell also...

                I talked to Jim and was about to go with him for the training but found out that I get a free class with the upgrade. So maybe after the class and somebody else in the company is up to speed I will ask Jim to come down and teach.

                  Same here - only didn't do the 25c longnecks. We hit alot of other bars in Nashville though....including one that I lost a lot of money at.......
