Learn toolpath simulation and documentation
In this module, you get to explore 3D toolpath creation for domes, bowls, and blended ribs. Identifying toolpaths to use for finishing work on various geometry is key to efficient machining. Some toolpaths will excel on specific geometry, and we will look at a few examples.
In this module, you learn to evaluate toolpath movements with simulation. Verifying digital tool movements before moving to a physical machine is a critical aspect of CAM. Once toolpaths are verified you will create setup sheets and export the NC program to machine readable code.
After completing this module, you’ll be able to:
- Use Simulation to validate toolpaths.
- Create setup sheet documentation.
- Create an NC program.
- Produce and review G-code.
