There are 4 modules in this course

In Week 1, we’ll focus on the creation of detailed drawings for production. Understanding not only how to create or customize a drawing, but also how to identify critical features or aspects of a design on a drawing is key to helping ensure the parts you get are the parts you want.

In Week 2, we’ll discuss topics surrounding the review and modification of designs for manufacture. From tool accessibility, to understanding the required tools and the design of fixturing and soft jaws for vises, this week will help prepare for programming toolpaths. We explore and understand the cost associated with part setup, raw stock, and material removal to better identify design changes for production.

In Week 3, we’ll focus on setting up and creating a CNC milling program. We’ll lay the foundation for all programs by creating and managing a tool library, defining a setup, and creating milling and drilling toolpaths. The setup and creation of these will be the basis for nearly every milling program.

In Week 4, we’ll cover additional toolpaths required to help rough and finish complex 3D shapes. Understanding the toolpaths available and the types of geometry they can be used on will help you to make informed decisions on any part. Toolpaths often have strengths and weaknesses based on the geometry and we'll identify some of these to help get your parts to the shop floor quicker.
