Duration: 4 Days
Prerequisite: Basic PC skills and general CNC Router setup and operation knowledge

Description: Our Instructor will mentor you in the basics of Mastercam interface navigation, geometry and tool path creation, leading you to program 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. Upon course completion you will be able to create, manipulate and import basic 2D wireframe and Solid models for tool path creation in drilling cycles, contouring, pocketing, nesting and tabbing.

2D Router – covers the following topics:

  • Mastercam Interface and layout
  • Creating/Modifying 2D wireframe geometry
  • Basics of Solids
  • Transforming geometry (rotate, scale, etc.)
  • Levels control
  • Preparing to Machine – machine definition and properties
  • Tool Path Utilities – toolpath manager, verify, back plot and posting
  • 2D contouring, tabbing & pocketing
  • Block drilling
  • Engraving
  • Chaining basics
  • Tool control (ramping, lead in/out)
  • Patterns
  • Nesting
  • Work offsets
  • Standard Aggregate tool heads (90 degree heads)
