NCT 123: 2D CAD CAM CNC Programming for Mills and Lathes

In this course, students will use geometry creation skills to create tool paths for drilling operations, arc hole patterns, hole patterns, slotting, facing, contouring, and pocket milling. The CAM files will be posted to the vertical CNC machine tools to create milled parts. Lathe cycles such as facing, internal and external roughing, grooving, and threading will be used with the CAM software to produce parts on the CNC horizontal lathes. This course contains material previously taught in NCT 249.

Level I Prereq: Academic Reading and Writing Levels of 6; NCT 120 minimum grade "C"
