Students will further their CNC skills by using a CAD/CAM Mastercam software to generate CNC coding for mills and lathes. Using Mastercam involves three steps: First, the student will use Mastercam’s CAD program to create the part geometry; secondly, the CAM program will be used to program machine information (feed rate, spindle speed, coolant control command, etc.); and finally, a postprocessor will be used to generate CNC coding. Also, tool paths will be verified by using a graphical (animation) solid-model tool path verification to detect potential machining errors. The students will also study drilling, solid modeling, pocketing and circle boring.
