This course is a three-day class, comprising of 2+ days spent learning about our multiaxis toolpaths and a few hours of applying what you have learned on our 5-axis machines. This class will introduce the concepts and principles of multiaxis machining and will include the following:

  • Identifying common multi-axis machine tool configurations.
  • Understanding the differences between multiaxis positioning and simultaneous toolpaths and where to apply each.
  • Understand the different types of multiaxis toolpaths and their benefits.
  • Understand capabilities and advantages multiaxis toolpaths provide over conventional 3 axis toolpaths.
  • Learning how machine simulation is used to prove out your programming.
  • Cover the full process of multiaxis programming from job setup to posting gcode.
  • Understand the various geometry selection methods for controlling cut pattern, tool axis and collision control.
  • Understand the concepts of 3+2 programming, the use of stock models as they relate to advanced multiaxis toolpaths, and much more!
  • Prerequisite: This is an advanced course and uses Mastercam to create advanced toolpaths which requires the user to have an in-depth understanding of toolpath programming and CAD.
  • Creation in Mastercam. Please note: students should have previously programmed many toolpaths using Mastercam before taking this course.

Cost: $650/day per person includes lunch.

This course is a 2-day class, comprising of a general overview of SOLIDWORKS and general programming in Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS. We will cover the differences between Mastercam and Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS and will explore the powerful geometry selection techniques that make Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS such an effective integrated-CAM solution.

Cost: $650/day per person includes lunch.

Learn how to use Productivity+, Mastercam’s integrated probing product. In this class, you will learn how to configure your CNC Machine* and integrate probing toolpaths within your Mastercam file to help set up your fixtures, measure (and compensate) for tool wear and breakage, inspect crucial features, and add if/then logic. As you go through the product, you will learn how to integrate productivity plus to your machine tool and run your probing toolpaths on real machines. * This class focuses primarily on Haas CNC machines but others will be discussed.

Cost: $650/day per person includes lunch.
