Beginner Mill - Teaches the basic concepts of the Mastercam interface and progresses to geometry definition and 2D Toolpath generation. Topics covered include tool and material libraries, 2 1/2 axis machining functions including contouring, pocketing, drilling, c-hooks, customization, and verification.
Intermediate Mill - Teaches the more advanced features and concepts of the Mastercam Milling products to an intermediate user. Topics covered include 3D wire framing, 3D surface modeling including net surfaces, coons surfaces, drafted surfaces, parting lines, surface curves, blending curves, splines, and more with a focus on how it applies to molds, patterns, and prototyping .
Advanced Mill - Designed from the experienced Mastercam user, Advanced Mill increases the student's knowledge of surface creation, wireframe, spline and surface manipulation to obtain better toolpaths, better surface finishes, and quality surface models. All aspects of 3D surface machining are covered. This includes 3D roughing routines, parallel, radial, plunge, pocket, restmill, project, contour, and flowline. All aspects of 3D surface finishing are covered including flowline, leftover, contour, high speed, pencil trace, slope analysis, scallop, and blended. The HST toolaths will all be introduced.
