Corporate Training Courses

Training classes offered at our corporate headquarters CNC Software, Inc.

Date: July 29- 31, 2019 or Nov. 11-13, 2019

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.

Other topics covered in the class include:

  • We will program a sample part from scratch, combining Job Setup, Planes, and Geometry Selection techniques.
  • Understanding parts, multi-body parts, and assemblies and how they work in Mastercam for SOLIDWORKS.
  • Understand how design changes can affect your toolpathsThe effective use of configuration and design tables and how to automate your toolpath programming for families of parts.
  • Prerequisites: Student must either have taken a SOLIDWORKS class through their local SOLIDWORKS reseller, obtain a CSWP, or have otherwise proven their understanding of SOLIDWORKS.
  • This class will start with a brief overview/introduction to SOLIDWORKS, however it is important that the students are able to navigate through SOLIDWORKS and create their own parts prior to the start of the class. It is assumed that the student has created parts in SOLIDWORKS.

Cost: $650/day per person includes lunch.

This class covers basic aspects of post configuration, variable definitions, formatting, post lines, boolean operations, post text, modality, control definition, and more.

Users taking this class should understand Mastercam, G-Code programming, and have some knowledge of a higher level programming language including variable types, variable declaration, and Boolean logic such as ‘if’, ‘else’, and ‘while’ statements. An understanding of Machine and Control Definition also required. Click here for a PDF that explains the Machine and Control Definition topics that should be known before taking this course.

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 setup 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.

Prerequisites: Students must have an understanding of Mastercam toolpath programming prior to attending this class.

Cost: $650/day per person includes lunch.
