Our proven training methods will take you step by step thru the programming process. Improve your efficiency by using the hot keys. See the part drawing right on the screen as the lesson progresses. No book can match this kind of visual presentation. Starting with a simple “Nose Piece”, we show you how to prepare the part for machining. Face the front of the billet, Rough and then Finish the OD. Then we show you how to dig deeper into the Parameters for more toolpath control.


Includes sample parts in DXF/DWG, Parasolid and Mastercam formats. Step by Step training, walks you thru every aspect of what you need to know.


Prepare For Mastercam Certification With....
     4 Hours of Video with Audio Narration.
           50 Lessons.
                6 Different Parts.


This process is reinforced by doing similar toolpaths on different Cad types. We Start by showing you how to draw the part. Then we Learn how to import a DXF and prepare it for machining. Last we import a Solid Models and do it again. This shows you how to deal with a variety of Cad types while learning their advantages and disadvantages.  Finally we explore the functions of Live tooling by using the C-Axis & Y-Axis toolpath functions. Explore Cross Drilling, Cross Milling, Face Drilling and Face Milling. See how any toolpath can be used on any lathe part once you know how to set up your planes.
