Course Description: This course introduces computer numerical control (CNC) programming in an applied fashion using lathe, milling, and other machines in the laboratory. The course emphasizes mastery of G and M codes and focuses on the integration of computer aided design (CAD), computer aided manufacturing (CAM), and CNC. The latest release of CAM software packages and modern CNC machines are available and used by the students to complete several hands-on projects.
Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- complete design projects using AutoCAD, Inventor, and MasterCAM;
- develop Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programs using the Preparatory Code (G) and Miscellaneous Code (M); and
- operate the CNC machines.
