Our Instructor will mentor you in creating Mastercam 2-axis lathe toolpaths along with C&Y axis milling  toolpaths. Students will learn from instructor lead exercises then work on over 30 different student exercises covering 2D wireframe then importing and manipulating Solid models for tool path creation for facing, drilling and rough & finish turning. Last, students will program several C & Y axis parts with live tooling. For each program created, you will post g-code, back plot and verify.
