Welcome to Advanced CAD: Design and Manufacturing Skills. If you study design or engineering and look to expand your CAD and CAM skills by incorporating CNC programming, you've come to the right course! This course walks you through various machining techniques and ideas for basic CNC mill toolpaths, lathe toolpaths, and advanced toolpath creation. We'll also explore how to analyze part design for injection molding and learn how to create a core and cavity block that we'll then use to program CNC toolpaths.
After completing this course, you'll be able to
● Create basic CNC toolpaths.
● Create a mold core and cavity block.
● Create advanced CNC toolpaths.
● Understand some geometry requirements of injection molding.
