SolidCAM HSR/HSM Training

$400.00

Duration: 1.0 Day/s
Prerequisites: SOLIDWORKS CAD course, expected to have basic knowledge of the SolidCAM software. The SolidCAM 2.5D Milling Training Course is recommended but not necessary and basic knowledge in using the Windows™ operating system.

This course is intended for experienced SolidCAM users and designed around a task-based approach to training. With the guided exercises you will learn the commands and options necessary to complete a machining task. The theoretical explanations are embedded into these exercises to give an overview of the SolidCAM HSR/HSM Milling capabilities.
