At Surfware, he invented Step Reduction Milling (SRM), a multiple-tool roughing strategy that reduces programming time and machining time in the mold-making industry. He is the principal inventor (first-named) on the patent for the technology, which has been widely imitated in the industry.
Glenn is also the first named inventor on the patent for TrueMill®, the revolutionary patented toolpath engine that dynamically manages a cutting tool's radial engagement with the material to dramatically reduce machining time. As Vice President of Product Design at Surfware, he designed the functional algorithm for the solution and performed extensive research on the technology, including mocking up proof-of-concept prototypes utilizing only basic CAD/CAM tools. Glenn has authored, or been interviewed for, several articles on this technology that have appeared in most major industry publications throughout the world. He has also spoken at several SME-sponsored trade shows.
