MET-130 - CAM 1

3 credits

CAM I explores machining by utilizing a graphical software package to generate part programs for a CNC mill and CNC lathe. The emphasis of the course is placed on learning to use the CAM software to select tools, manipulate part geometry, and convert screen graphics into a CNC program. Students learn the integration of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) with CAM in order to understand how to proceed from the design process through the manufacturing process. Both 2D CAD files and 3D CAD files (solid models) are imported into the CAM software for manufacturing.
