Audience

This is an advanced training program for CNC machinists, programmers, and manufacturing engineers with MasterCAM experience and training who need to develop more advanced skills in 3-D surface and solid modeling techniques, and mulitaxis toolpath programming for complex machined parts.


Recommended Prerequisites

For this advanced training participants must have successfully completed a basic MasterCAM® training program or have prior experience in creating toolpaths using MasterCAM®. This training assumes each participant already has the skills using MasterCAM® X2 or above to create geometry and toolpaths for contouring, drilling, tapping, threading, and pocketing operations.
