Helpful Mastercam Resources for Remote Educational Curriculum
We know the impact of COVID-19 on students, schools, and teachers has been tremendous. In order to help with efforts to maintain learning opportunities and transition to remote instruction, Mastercam is pleased to provide an array of free resources. The following are free to use for online learning initiatives and virtual classroom instruction.
The Quick Part Series includes guided curriculum that takes students through the CAD/CAM/CNC process from project start to a finished part. These tutorials provide instructors a convenient means of teaching students about manufacturing terminology, techniques, and processes while providing valuable experience using the world’s leading CAM software.
Three projects in the Mastercam Quick Part Series are available free of charge. These project-based learning modules provide tutorials for Mastercam Mill, Mastercam Router, and Mastercam Lathe:
