Getting Started Tutorials

The Getting Started Series of tutorials introduce basic Mastercam X6 features and functions. Available from your Mastercam Reseller as printable PDF tutorials and video tutorial EXE files, these introductory tutorials guide students step-by-step through a series of lessons. The lessons are divided into short exercises so they’re easy to complete. The tutorials are best used in sequence, but they can also be used independently.

The PDF versions include the sample parts you need to go through each tutorial exercise. The video versions are fully interactive, multimedia training lessons that let you experience each Mastercam function without needing Mastercam installed on your system. Here is an example of one of the videos:
