About this Event
This COMBINES the previous two classes necessary to get access to using the HAAS CNC Vertical Mill into one. Class is 6 hours.
This is mostly a classroom event and shop demo which will cover a small project and will lead the student thru doing the Computer Aided Machining (CAM) portion of a 3D model of a Domino. The 2nd half of class introduces the student to the HAAS controller, tool setup, operation and setups for the project before proceeding to the next step. The safety rules are also covered.
The student will be guided thru the CAM process in a step-by-step procedure which should guarantee success and consistency of the project and the learning process.
