CAM and Prismatic Machining (CATIA III) (CDE487)


Prerequisite Courses

Co-Requisite Courses

Course Memo

The course will cover measurement, quality assurance and tolerances in addition to material removal processes. It will include chip-type machining, cutting tools for machining, turning, boring and its derivatives. Milling and drilling will also be covered extensively, as well as numerical control and machining centers and the principles of the languages used in their operations. During the second half of the semester, the CATIA prismatic machining module will be used to virtually design and machine a series of parts using the processes already learned. Students will create an network computer code and input it into the program to prove out the part. Upon completion of the course, the student will feel a sense of accomplishment in not only designing the part, but also in its manufacture. Prerequisite: CDE486
