Course abstract

During the study course students get acquainted with the CAM system, prepare the program files for the mechanical processing. Students learn modeling of cutting processes and engineer processing path of cutting tool.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

• Knowledge. students know graphical analysis and display of it. Understand creation of idea sketches, preparation of detailed drawings-plans, drawings, visualization of three-dimensional objects
• Skills. Students acquire the skills to independently use functions of MasterCAM software and the ability to create a CNC machine tool control program for the details manufacturing process.
• Kompetence. Ability to understand the specifics of different manufacturers and the designing complexity levels of the serial products, to know the necessary machine tools, devices, tools and equipment.
