The CAM software that competitors in the upcoming WorldSkills 2015 competition have been practicing on for months, honing their programming skills, has become the official software for the machining competitions there. Mastercam will be used in the four machining competitions, including CNC Turning, CNC Milling, Plastic Die Engineering, and the Manufacturing Team Challenge. The Manufacturing Challenge requires the teams to use Mastercam to produce parts on lathe and milling machines that may be assembled together to produce a workable product.

CNC Software Inc. provides Mastercam free of charge to WorldSkills competitors for the year leading up to the competition. 

WorldSkills São Paulo 2015 is the year’s largest international skills competition with young people from across the globe competing to be the best of the best in their chosen skill. The competition takes place at Anhembi Parque, São Paulo, Brazil, from August 11-16. Billed as the “Olympics of the skilled trades,” competitors will compete for gold, silver and bronze medals to take back to their respective countries.

CNC Software is active in this competition at a grassroots level, helping the contestants around the world with software to prepare for the event. This is done in conjunction with the local Mastercam resellers to get them involved with future engineers and machinists.
