CNC201: CAD/CAM Software - VCarve Pro and Cut3D
Class Number 215-53663

In this information packed, hands-on, computer class you will learn the ins and outs of working with both VCarve Pro and Cut3D software packages.

VCarve Pro is an easy-to-use CNC toolpath engine that generates precision toolpaths for virtually all CNC machines. You'll learn how to convert CAD DXF files and graphic designs into GCode-based CNC toolpaths for machining high quality parts and components.

Cut3D is a dedicated toolpath engine for CNC machining 3D models that have been designed using a 3D CAD software such as Autodesk Inventor and other graphic design products. Cut3D's simple interface leads you step by step through the process of loading a model, setting the size, workholding, and calculating single, double- or four-sided roughing and finishing toolpaths. It will even allow you to virtually preview the results of your toolpath and then finally save the CNC code to run on your choice of machines.

Upon successful completion of this class you will have the experience and knowledge necessary to enroll in any Level 3 CNC Machining Series class.
