Description: TEST TEST This 4-day course is the first part of the 8-day Mastercam Mill training curriculum. It will provide students with the basic skills required to develop NC programs that require 2-axis and 3-axis milling operations. The student will be introduced to the basic concepts of CAD/CAM geometry creation, editing techniques, as well as 2 and 3-axis machining functions including; contouring, pocketing, drilling, toolpath verification, and post processing. Students will also learn how to create and manage geometry, tool libraries, and machining operations.
Prerequisites: MastercamU Mill Design and Toolpath on-line course or like experience. Class is suitable for first time users of CAD/CAM Software. Some computer experience is helpful but not required.
Duration: 4 days
