Mill Essentials

Learn the basics of the Mastercam Mill CAD and drafting tools. Use these tools to develop basic 2½ axis toolpaths and tool control. Configure Mastercam to automatically calculate speeds and feeds based on your machining intent. Learn to configure Mastercam to work the way you want to work. Learn advanced 3D CAD and CAM techniques, including advanced pocketing, drilling, and helical entry.

Description:

Our Instructor will mentor you in the basics of Mastercam icon functions, geometry and tool path creation that will lead to you to programming many different parts from start to finish. You will learn the foundational principles of basic 2½ axis tool paths and build upon them by programming many real world examples to develop your abilities. You will be able to create and work with basic 2D wireframe and then import and manipulate Solid models for tool path creation in drilling cycles, advanced pocketing, helical entry and the use of dynamic milling. Last you will be able to program rotary axis substitution and index units.
