UGRD
| 2 CR
Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Assisted Manufacturing (CAM) have become standard tools used almost wherever CNC production in metalworking takes place. Students will use the CAD/CAM software to build geometry, tool and material libraries, and define cutting paths/patterns. Post-processing of these CAD/CAM files will generate CNC programs in machine-specific G-code format. PREREQUISITE: 32420361 Introduction to CAD/CAM or consent of instructor.
32420361
|
UGRD
| 1 CR
This course will introduce students to computer-aided drafting (CAD) and computer-aided machining (CAM). Students will use appropriate CAD software to prepare mechanical drawings. Students will be introduced to CAD/CAM equipment.
