Projects for real-world parts

This project series includes 11 projects, each of which is for a different part of an engine. Each project includes exercises to practice CAD modeling, CAM programming, and CNC machining for each part. When all projects are completed, the parts can be combined into a model engine. Since they use standardized stock and include instructor resources, these projects are easy to implement and offer learners the bonus of being able to show future employers a physical model engine part showcasing their skills.


Engaging and easy-to-implement CAD/CAM projects designed for the classroom.
