This class is designed to communicate how multiaxis milling machines can improve the efficiency of subtractively manufacturing your parts. We will then explain many of the common problems experienced by computer numerical control (CNC) programmers or owners of these machines, followed by a series of short demonstrations where we will explain how PowerMill software could provide solutions to these problems. This class will be useful for anyone involved in multiaxis milling. There are no prerequisite skills required, nor is knowledge of PowerMill required.

Key Learnings

  • Understand how multiaxis milling can improve your machining efficiency
  • Gain an understanding of the challenges that these machines will provide to new customers
  • Learn how PowerMill customers typically overcome these common problems, and how many of these solutions can be applied to other CAM solutions
  • Learn many PowerMill tips and tricks along the way

Great class Craig! I skipped out half way through to go to another meeting. It's unfortunate that there was a lot of cross over with Mike's class in the beginning. But having just watched the 2nd half, it was totally what I was expecting based on your class title. I understand why you needed the kinematic preamble in the case of your class being totally standalone for those newish to 5-axis. Thank you!

If you wanted to improve it a bit. Spending a little less on the kinematics at the beginning, then explaining some examples of singularities some more would be really helpful given its such an abstract but vitally important topic.
