NCT 123: 2D CAD CAM CNC Programming for Mills and Lathes

In this course, students will use geometry creation skills to create tool paths for drilling operations, arc hole patterns, hole patterns, slotting, facing, contouring, and pocket milling. The computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) files will be posted to the vertical computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools to create milled parts. Lathe cycles such as facing, internal and external roughing, grooving, and threading will be used with the CAM software to produce parts on the CNC horizontal lathes.

Level I Prereq: Academic Reading and Writing Levels of 6; NCT 101 and NCT 120, minimum grade "C"
