Introduction to CAD-CAM

This course teaches the basic computer-aided drafting techniques necessary for the production of parts using the automated manufacturing processes. BodCAD/CAM is used in this course to create drawings and generate toolpaths used by the CNC routers and other machine centers. Students are taught to produce accurate drawings of parts, manage files for the production environment, properly define tooling parameters for machining the parts, and the graphical simulation of those toolpaths using CAM software.

Introduction to TurboCAD/CNC Template Making

This is a two part course. The first part is a introduction to the computer-aided drafting software, TurboCAD. It covers an in-depth look at how to create, modify and save drawings. Topics presented in this course include; accurately drawing complex geometries, modifying objects, editing the drawing, setting up and using layers effectively, and setting up and using snaps to draw effectively. Students will also learn how to accurately dimension drawing parts.

The second part of this course deals with the set-up and operation of the WTC’s CNC Template Maker. Students will take the knowledge and skills learned in the first part (TurboCAD), to transfer their artwork into the CNC Template machine and generate an accurate template for the production of shop tooling. Focus will be on setting up the machine parameters, proper work space placement, and file transfer.
