Matt Reynolds is one of our NX CAM applications engineers. His focuses and specialties are in CAM programming, hardware prototyping, NX CAM support, and manufacturing in general. Matt earned his Bachelors of Engineering with a mechanical design concentration from Dartmouth College, where he spent his senior project building snowboard binding prototypes. During his time as a student, Matt worked at the Thayer School Machine Shop, cultivating a healthy appreciation for machining and thoughtful design.
After college, Matt worked as a process and mechanical engineer at Plethora, helping to develop custom CAM software and a manufacturing process to greatly reduce costs for prototype, low-volume machining. Responsibilities ranged from programming and operating CNC mills and CMMs to working with software engineers to develop tablet PC interfaces for stations around the factory. Beyond Plethora, Matt worked as a mechanical designer at Gener8, a mechanical design and manufacturing consulting group with a focus on medical devices and in-house manufacturing.
Matt’s current focus is learning the ins and outs of NX and NX CAM. His greatest strength is his ability to adapt his experiences to understand others; he hopes that by having experience in CAM software development, mechanical design, and manufacturing engineering, he’ll be able to effectively address any challenge at Applied CAX.
