ATAP 2350 - 3D MasterCAM-Die/Mold CNC Machining

Credit Hours: 2.00


Prerequisites: ATAP 2030

This course teaches the advanced concepts of MasterCAM milling. Through lecture and lab assignments, the student will learn advanced CAD/CAM modeling skills. Students will design 3D models. These models are then used to create CNC 3D toolpaths using the CAM module. Terminology used in the field of CAD/CAM will be emphasized.

Location: South Campus

Contact Hours: 2
Billable Contact Hours: 2
