With new versions of Mastercam coming out every year it can be very difficult to keep up with all the latest enhancements and improvements without occasionally taking some training classes. The good news is that Cimquest has you covered! Throughout the rest of this month we have some great options covering three different topics in three different locations. Please see below for the available options. And don’t despair if your desired class is not being offered in your desired location. We have a constant stream of class options in all of our office locations. Just click the button at the bottom of this article for more options.
Mill Essentials – MA, August 21-24
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.
Mill 3 Axis – CT, August 29-31
Learn to create and edit complex surfaces and curves, and then machine them using a variety of efficient toolpaths. Single and multiple surface machining is discussed. Other topics include pencil tracing, gap settings, tool boundaries, and drive surfaces.
Lathe Essentials – MA, August 30-31
Learn Mastercam tools and techniques specific to CNC lathe operations. Get in-depth information regarding lathe toolpaths, including facing and grooving operations, stock transfer, and an introduction to C-axis machining. Learn how to use lathe tool libraries, create new tools, and use those tools to quickly and accurately turn new components.
