San Francisco Workshop Resource: the CNC Learning Path
by：QY Precision 2020-01-04
This description table applies to Autodesk employees who work as workshop users at Pier 9. If this does not describe you, please jump to steps 7, 10 and 11 for resources, software and other guides to help you learn CNC concepts and CAM skills anywhere. Do you want to make CNC ( Computer numerical control) But don\'t know where to start? Are you an experienced mechanic who wants to develop new skills? Pier 9 CNC learning path is for you for learners of all levels! This Instructure will lead you through every step of our unique CNC learning path, from training sessions to one-on- Perform a skill check on the machine course. Our list of learning resources will help you build a wide range of knowledge in your learning process. Through this path, you will learn the basic theory behind CNC machining, use the CNC function at the dock, and then use our intuitive computer-aided machining to program your own parts (CAM)software. From beginners to more advanced users, we welcome everyone to join us at Pier 9 to build this valuable skill set. Each lesson is the cornerstone of the next lesson, so remember to take the time, master each step and enjoy the learning process before continuing to learn! Register for Autodesk global workshop safety training and Pier 9 with Autodesk Learning Center Site Workshop positioning. The second course is designed to introduce Autodesk\'s Terminal 9 seminar and train new users and guides on store hazards, security protocols, training programs and resources at the seminar. This course is required to enter the terminal 9 workshop and laboratory. Take a manual grinding course. The manual grinder is used to accurately cut and shape metal blocks, drill holes and cut slots, grooves and pockets, as well as chamfer/rounded edges, and create holes. Before going into computer programming, it is important to start with a manual process that allows you to understand the basic mechanical operation of metal cutting, as well as the cutting force and feeding speed of various materials. Check Appendix B in the third edition of Peter Smid\'s CNC programming manual for an accurate feed speed table. We have a copy of the book in the CNC store. After the course, dive and do two or three things on the manual Mill. Take the concept of CNC at Pier 1: 9 as an example. In this course, you will have a basic understanding of exactly what CNC is, what CNC machines can and cannot do, and how the CAD-to-CAM process works. Learn technical concepts such as speed and feed, milling tools, coordinate systems, tool path types, and workpiece retention strategies. Take CNC 2: beginner CAM programming. Put your theoretical CNC skills into practice with these hands Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) Programming courses using Fusion 360 or Inventor HSM Pro 2016. Set up material inventory, work coordinate system, and execute 2D tool processing strategies such as face-to-face, adaptive cleanup, pickpocketing, and contour drawing. Bring the laptop with the software installed. Download the trial version of Autodesk Inventor HSM Pro 2016 or Fusion 360 here. Participate in CNC 3: advanced CAM programming. In this lesson, you will build on the tool path strategy of CNC 2. Practice the planning and chamfer of multiple settings, part flipping, machining of highlights, irregular materials. This class will teach you the basic skills required for the programming certification section in the presence of the instructor. Bring the laptop with the software installed. After completing CNC 1- 3, you will want to practice by yourself before arranging skill check #1 with CNC lead lecturer. In this skill check you will be expected to define key terms from CNC 1- 3, and programming certified parts from scratch in Fusion 360 or Inventor HSM. You will find a list of key terms, as well as a copy of the \"Terminal 9 CNC concept\" presentation attached to this step. Also read the CNC Manual, Chapter 1-4, 7, 9, 10. There is also a printed copy in your red binder. Practice CAM programming by following the steps in beginner and advanced CAM Instructure. The skill check takes one and a half hours to two hours. Bring your print setup sheet with you. If you want to focus on CNC machining on DMS or Shopbot, you are ready for success and have completed the CNC learning path. Take a Machine course and start a simple project while the operating procedure is still fresh in your mind. For users who want to move forward and for metal processing, after passing this skill check, you will receive the password for Haas factory safety/basic use course. Watch all these ten intro videos and get to know the Haas interface before Haas security/basic use lessons, which is not always intuitive! This will help you prepare for a successful machine operation. Register for Haas security/basic use course with your password. Haas CNC vertical mill can cut metal in 2. High precision 5D or 3D. Students will learn the basics of safe operation of the machine, including: Start-up, insert tools, measuring tools, locating artifacts, loading programs, and safe running programs. Now, it\'s time to email the chief lecturer of CNC to schedule the time for the skill check- Process Certified Parts at Haas factory. You will get the machine for the whole day, so take the time, step by step and enjoy it! Congrats! You have an aluminum object in your hand that you program and process, completing the cycle from concept to practice! So now what? It\'s time to start your own project. Make sure to keep your design simple in the first place: step by step from 2. The 5D to 3D Machining strategy can be started with just one or several settings.
