We don't often get new shop equipment. When we do, it's often difficult to configure Fabrication CAMduct software to work with it, or we need to pay for an expensive consultant. This lab is designed to take the fear out of machine setup in Fabrication CAMduct software by walking you through the process, including how to figure out what to do—as well as what to do when things don't go as planned. This session features Fabrication CAMduct.
- Learn how to set up a basic machine in Fabrication CAMduct
- Learn about reverse-engineering CNC code
- Discover common problems and solutions
- Engage in some fast-track troubleshooting
