CAD 211 Computer Aided Manufacturing

This course is a hands-on computer-aided manufacturing course. Students will utilize the latest PC-based industrial CAM software to produce Computer Numerical Control machine tool programs for a CNC mill and CNC lathe. The students will learn to use the CAM software to select tools, enter part geometry, and convert screen graphics into a CNC program. Topics include creating programs for milling and turning operations (ID and OD turning, threading, grooving, and back turning), communication between program and machine, and editing models to improve software utilization. In addition, the student will learn the integration of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) with CAM to enhance the understanding of the design to manufacturing process. Pre- or co-requisite: EGR 111 or EGR 112 and CAD 111 or CAD 172. Two class hours and three laboratory hours per week. Instructional Support Fee applies. NOTE: Utilizes Windows based software only. 3 credits Fall
