is so good
This eCourse is designed to familiarize you with the Mastercam user interface and provide the resources you need to become proficient with geometry creation and toolpaths for lathe applications. If you are new to Mastercam, it will help you quickly develop your Mastercam skill set; if you are already using the software, 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 7 hours to complete.
Tutorial 1 covers the Face, Roughing and Finish toolpaths.
Tutorial 2 covers Groove using Multiple Chains & Drilling toolpaths.
Tutorial 3 covers Canned Rough & Finish toolpaths, Groove at an angle, as well as Custom Tool & Cutoff toolpaths.
Tutorial 4 covers ID Rough, Finish & Groove toolpaths.
Tutorial 5 covers the Thread toolpath and Stock Flip.
Tutorial 6 includes Stock Advance and Lathe Tailstock operations.
Tutorial 7 covers machining a part in a Vertical Turret Lathe (VTL machine). We will bring in a part from SolidWorks and manipulate the geometry appropriately within Mastercam.
Videos explaining how to create a new Lathe tool and save it to the Tool Library, and how to modify an existing Lathe Tool.
