That is some impressive CAD work that had to have been done to get to the CAM stage.

Years ago, I went to Wright-Patterson in Dayton and got a guided tour of their machine shop courtesy of my wife's cousin....they had a five-axis CAM that would mill the turbine blades for jet engines....HUGE machine capable of milling parts 4 or 5 feet in diameter.....they had to cut up the slab, pour a concrete base 8' deep to ensure that the machine did not move a micrometer when it was in use. I was slack-jawed.

BTW, they had there the reverse winged F-16 that they used to see if it would work. The plane could only fly with its computers. Guess it didn't work too hot as they never made another one.
