Description

This course will examine the fundamentals of a basic 3-axis setup using Delcam PowerMILL. We will start by learning how to set up a part within stock, and then we will use area clearance toolpaths to rough the part. We will then discuss various finishing strategies, moving from a semi-finish to a true finish, and we will follow up with detailing toolpaths, such as auto cornering and pencil cuts. Finally, we will use workplanes and interactive stock models to set up a second position, commonly known as a "flip mill," before analyzing our toolpaths for gouging and collisions and then simulating our numerical control programs.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to position a part within stock for a 3-axis CAM setup
  • Learn how to set up a CNC programming strategy moving from rough to semi-finish to finish to detailing
  • Learn how to use workplanes and interactive stock models to set up a second position for a "flip mill"
  • Learn how to analyze and simulate NC programs to better ensure quality and avoid gouging and collisions
