Introduces Mastercam Mill operational basics. Includes terminology relevant to PC-based CAD/CAM work. Covers the use of the Mastercam Mill menu structure and system management, 2 1/2 axis wireframe geometry creation, and toolpath creation for output of CNC "G" code for CNC milling.

Learning outcomes

1. Explain concepts and demonstrate techniques associated with Mastercam CAD/CAM software for CNC Mill.
2. Demonstrate fundamental machining operations performed on CNC Mill machining centers.
3. Demonstrate concepts of generating tool paths using the combined (existing geometry) and direct (new geometry) methods utilizing Mastercam computer assisted machining software for the CNC Mill.
