SolidCAM Simultaneous 5-axis Training

$900.00

Duration: 2.0 Day/s
Prerequisites: SOLIDWORKS CAD course. CNC machining knowledge. Expected to have basic knowledge of the SolidCAM software. The SolidCAM 2.5D Milling & HSS (High Speed Surfacing) Training Course is recommended to be studied before this course for better understanding of Milling with the SolidCAM software.

This course is designed around a task-based approach to training. The guided exercises will teach you the necessary commands and options to complete a machining task. The theoretical explanations are embedded into these exercises to give an overview of the SolidCAM Simultaneous 5-axis milling capabilities.
