Seeing something huge like one of these billet heads, which requires this number of machining operations, go from a giant block of billet to something capable of supporting half the cylinders in a 4,500 horsepower combination.

    Having a degree in CADD, I can appreciate the hours, days, months involved in preparing the programming to accomplish this type operation. I am curious about how long it took to write the program to bring this raw block of aluminum to the point at the end of this video, if you don’t mind sharing. Marvelous work, I might add. Best of everything to you and everyone else involved.
