CAM Strategies for Turning


Course overview

Preparing, programming, and validating toolpaths for a 2-axis lathe is critical step before progressing to CNC machines with more axes of movement. Ensuring the digital tool geometry and motion exactly matches the intent must be validated before moving to a physical machine. Learn the basics of model prep, setup, programming, and export of 2-axis CNC lathe toolpaths.

After completing this course, you'll be able to: 

  • Understand the model preparation workflow for CNC Lathe parts.
  • Setup a digital tool library.
  • Create a CNC CAM Lathe setup.
  • Create and validate CNC Lathe toolpaths.
  • Export machine readable G-code for CNC Lathes.
