Introduction to CAM

This course is an introduction to CAM using Fusion 360/Inventor HSM. The candidates will learn about the different types of machining most used in manufacturing today, machine setups, tooling, creating toolpaths, calculating feeds and speeds, simulating, posting code and understanding G-code. During this course we take you through 3/4/5 axis Milling, Mill/Turning, fabrication, Probing, and 3D printing and that you will sufficiently be able to put it to use.
