Course:Machining Operations Using SolidCAM

Course Description
SolidCAM is a CAM software integrated with SOLIDWORKS. It provides a complete set of tools required for part machining and is extensively used in industry to control the tool path for the machining of components.

This course covers all major tools and operations of this software such as 2.5 Axis Milling, 3-Axis Milling, High Speed Machining, and CAM Turning. After completing this course, the trainees/students will be able to control and simulate the toolpath as well as generate the NC-code file.
Class Hours: 80 (Theory and Practical)

Prerequisites: The trainee/student needs to be an Engineer/Technologist with knowledge of manufacturing processes. Familiarity with CNC machining technology and G & M codes will be added advantage.

Course Objectives:
Upon completion of the course, trainees/students will be able to:
  1. Understand the designing operations on SOLIDWORKS
  2. Define the part, stock, and checks for geometry
  3. Understand the different types of tools and holders
  4. Create machining operations
  5. Generate the tool path
  6. Verify the tool path
  7. Check machine simulation
  8. Generate machine codes
Major Instructional Areas:
  1. Introducing SolidCAM and SOLIDWORKS (integration)
  2. Defining geometry
  3. Defining tools and their functions
  4. Creating operations for 2.5D and 3D axis milling
  5. Creating Operations for HSR Roughing, HSM Finishing, and Turning
  6. Generating Tool Path and G code
Evaluation:There will be one exam that every trainee/student must pass with at least 75% to get a certificate of completion from TIET.

Suggested Learning Approach
In this course, you will study individually or within a group of peers. As you work on the course deliverables, you are encouraged to share ideas with your peers and instructor, work collaboratively on projects and team assignments, raise critical questions, and provide constructive feedback.
