This course is designed to familiarize you with the Mastercam user interface (UI) and provide the resources you need to become proficient with 2D geometry creation and toolpaths. If you are new to Mastercam, it will help you quickly develop your Mastercam skill set; if you are already using the software, (perhaps an older version) it will get you up-to-date and enhance your abilities. 

Below you will find an overview of the eCourse video content organized by tutorial and respective video segments. Each tutorial will walk you through creating geometry, applying then verifying toolpaths and generating G-Code for a machinable part. This course will take approximately 13 hours to complete.

Note: The free home learning edition/demo software for this course has expired. You can still watch the videos and read the eBook but you will not be able to follow along unless you own a licensed version of Mastercam.

I found the course very helpful. I thought at first  level 1 would be a waste of time, but I was surprised at what learned. It is also nice to have the videos available for future review. now onto the level 3 course.

I don't yet have experience in a shop, so for me this is something new and really interesting. The level 1 course was very good, I like the way the instructor develops the tutorials. They are easy to follow and come with exercises. I also like that he uses different tools or different ways to do the same operations. That allows me to get a better understanding of the program and the different possibilities that the software offers. Another good thing that I found was the explanations about some of the features, I mean the reason why we use that feature. However, I think some of the features or choices that we have to set through the tool settings are done without explanation. Consequently we don't know the reason behind every choice. In my view it is important to provide information about all the tool options but I understand that by doing so the video will much longer. Overall, I would like to give this course 4.5 stars but I don't see that option. I look forward to the next course!
