UntitledCimquest has a number of Mastercam training classes coming up over the next couple of months with seats still available. These classes not only cover a variety of topics, but they are also offered in a variety of locations. Please see the list below for more details.

Mastercam Essentials
June 8-11 in HBG, PA
June 8-11 in CT
June 22-25 in Butler, PA
June 29-July 2 in MA

Learn the basics of Mastercam icon functions, geometry and tool path creation that will lead to you to programming 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. You will be able to create and work with basic 2D wireframe and then import and manipulate Solid models for tool path creation in drilling cycles, advanced pocketing, helical entry and the use of dynamic milling. Last you will be able to program rotary axis substitution and index units. The following topics will be covered:

  • Mastercam Interface and layout
  • Creating/Modifying 2D wireframe geometry
  • 2D drafting (notes, dimensions, etc.)
  • Transforming geometry (rotate, scale, etc.)
  • Levels control
  • Creating and manipulating Solid Models
  • Preparing to Machine – machine definition and properties
  • Tool Path Utilities – toolpath manager, verify, back plot and posting
  • 2D contouring, pocketing, and drilling
  • Chaining basics
  • Advance Geometry creation
  • Tool control (ramping, lead in/out)
  • Patterns
  • Helical entry
  • Dynamic Milling – advanced contouring and pocketing
  • Advanced drilling
  • Work offsets
  • Rotary axis substitution
  • Indexing

May 18-20 in HBG, PA
May 26-28 in MA
June 30-July 2 in Butler, PA
July 6-8 in CT

Learn to create and edit complex surfaces and curves, and then machine them using a variety of efficient toolpaths. Single and multiple surface machining is discussed. Other topics include pencil tracing, gap settings, tool boundaries, and drive surfaces. The following topics will be covered:

  • Creating/Modifying surfaces
  • Creating 3D curves
  • 3D wireframe contouring machining
  • Single surface machining
  • Multiple surface roughing & finishing
  • Gouge checking

  • Flowline
  • Multi-surface
  • Filtering
  • Entry/exit
  • Tool control
  • Roughing / finishing parameters
  • Gouge checking


Mastercam Lathe Essentials
May 20-21 in NJ
June 25-25 in HBG, PA
July 9-10 in MA

Learn Mastercam tools and techniques specific to CNC lathe operations. Get in-depth information regarding lathe toolpaths, including facing and grooving operations, stock transfer, and C-axis machining. Learn how to use lathe tool libraries, create new tools, and use those tools to quickly and accurately turn new components. The following topics will be covered:

  • Chaining techniques
  • Defining tools
  • Libraries
  • Posting
  • Operation manager
  • Tooling parameters
  • Toolpath
