NCT 249: CAD/CAM CNC Programming
In this course, students learn to use CAD/CAM software to design parts and generate CNC machine tool programs for part manufacture. Students practice the input of geometry as the basis for tool path generation. Both 2D and 3D wireframe geometry are practiced. Various methods of surface creation are presented and practiced. CNC machine tool programs are created for the manufacture of parts within the software. Drilling pocketing and contour milling are typical 2D machining applications presented. Students are provided time in the CNC machine tool laboratory.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“I was very reluctant to take online classes, but because of my various roles as a wife, mother, full-time employee, and student my time was limited…. Online classes have helped with managing my time in these various roles, and have been a true blessing to both my family and my learning experience at WCC.”—F. Robertson
