Creating Toolpaths for a CNC Lathe
Welcome to Creating Toolpaths for a CNC Lathe!
This course is for you if you are looking to learn more about how to make tools for CNC machining, or if you are looking to refresh your knowledge of basic manufacturing concepts. The course is designed to help you learn about the various types of tools and materials available to machinists, as well as provide you with a basic understanding of what to look for in the lathe shop. The course will also give you a framework for understanding the tools and materials available at your disposal.
This course is a collaboration between Coursera and CNC Machinists Local 7. You will learn how to use a CNC mill simulator to work with data from all courses in this specialization. This will allow you to see the data in the mill in the context of all the machinists who have taken this course so far.
The simulator in the background will use the tools you will learn in the class as a guide to get you up to speed quickly on CAD design. You can test drive the simulator by copying and pasting the following link into your web browser: https://www.coursera.org/learn/cnc-machinist-toolpath-simulator. We have put a great deal of effort into making the simulator user-friendly and intuitive; the course is designed to help you learn quickly, as well as stay motivated and effective.
In the beginning of the course, you will be introduced to basic CNC machining terminology and will learn how to use different CAD/CAM software tools to make your design a reality. We will then take you through a series of CAD files that will help you understand how a CNC machinist uses CAD. This includes CAD design tools such as CAD Studio, CAD Builder, and CAD Read Eval Report. We will also cover how a CNC machinist interacts with CAD files. The second course in this series, CAD Extruder Integration, will show you how a CNC machinist uses an Extruder Head to control their machine. You will also learn how to use an Extruder Head mounted on a CAM.
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
– choose the right CAD software to use for a CAD design
– set up an Extruder Head and CAM for a CNC machinist
– make design changes to a CAD design
– save design changes for future reference
