In this module, you create a CAM setup for a 3-axis vertical milling center and begin to rough and finish operation 1 of the course part. The first 3-axis geometry to tackle will be slopes and curves. Isolate toolpaths to areas and faces to make the most efficient cuts possible.
After completing this module, you’ll be able to:
- Create a CAM setup.
- Rough a 3-axis part.
- Create a 3-axis finishing toolpath on a specific face.
- Create a 3-axis finishing toolpath in a specific boundary.
- Identify critical toolpath settings for finishing.
