MET-131 - Lab: CAM 11 credits
This course is the laboratory companion of MET-130. In this laboratory setting, student teams collaborate on part program graphics and create CNC code. Then, the CNC file is downloaded to the machine tool and the part is manufactured. After part creation, students perform inspection, followed by documentation of the event. 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.
