MCHT 2900 - Computer Aided Machining II

This course is designed to introduce the learner to multi-axis machining.  Students use CAM software to create toolpaths in order to generate programs for multi-axis programming.  These programs are used to operate Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machining Centers.

Credits: 3

Instructional Method Separate Lecture and Lab


Completion of MCHT 2800 Computer Aided Machining with a ‘C’ or better, or instructor consent
