Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) Milling introduces students to the fundamentals of CAM programs and their use in industry.
Students use the spectraCAM software, which converts CAD drawings into numerical control (NC) files that can be used to produce parts on a CNC milling center. The spectraCAM software features an integrated CAD drawing package that allows a seamless and easy working environment and includes a graphic tool path simulation package for immediate part proofing.
Activities focus on toolpath generation, contouring, engraving, pocketing, machining operations for ruled and swept surfaces, and code generation.
