COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is a study of Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) using a variety of software, programming languages and methods to produce Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining programs. Programming languages will include Machinist/Conversational, Word Address and APT.

CAM software is used to develop detailed CAD drawings, generate machine tool cutter paths and to develop the machining programs via post processing for specific CNC machine tools. Laboratory exercises include programming, machine tool setup and machine operation. Communication between the CAD/CAM computers and the machine tools using RS-232 communication protocol is also studied.
STUDENT OBJECTIVES
At the end of this course the student will be able to do the following:
1. Demonstrate the ability to use basic machining and manufacturing concepts

2. Use appropriate terminology and procedures used in computer aided manufacturing systems



  1. Demonstrate a basic understanding of numerical control functions and operations by writing 2D and 3D CNC machining programs

  2. Create CAD and CAM drawings for CNC machining programs
