Learn to machine slopes and curves

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.


Module overview

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.
