Learn toolpath simulation and documentation

Module overview

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.
