Third Wave Systems recently concluded a series of Regional User Conferences for 2021. NC programmers, CXOs, plant managers, and production team members convened for our annual gathering of the best minds in machining. 

Attendees started their paths to achieving the impossible:

  • Experiencing the most advanced machine modeling techniques available today;
  • Participating in an exchange of ideas at 1:1 meetings and networking sessions
  • Taking an exclusive tour of the Advanced Technology Center

Attendees were able to get the first look at what is coming in the next AdvantEdge and Production Module Release and share ideas for what they would like to see in future releases. Best of all, they left the conference empowered to help their organization deliver greater innovation–and improve their speed to market.

Next year, the conference heads to Detroit, Michigan, in May 2022! We will host the conference at The Inn at St. John’s followed by an interactive networking event. The whole Third Wave Systems team is excited to bring together the machining modeling innovators from all over the world.


We would like to thank all the speakers at the Users Conference. The presentations were the key to the success of the event!
