This eCourse is designed to provide the resources you need to become proficient with 3D geometry creation and toolpaths. If you are new to Mastercam, it is highly recommended that you start with Mill Level 1 (book or eCourse) to build a firm foundation of 2D knowledge prior to exploring 3D.
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 15 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.
