RhinoCAM® Student Training Videos from MSU
Montana native Bill Clinton teaches Design Build classes and is also the director of Fabrication Shop at the School of Architecture at MSU (Montana State University). The RhinoCAM® machining software is available to every student on site-wide CampusCAM annual licensing. To help his student get familiar with RhinoCAM® Bill has put together a number of student training videos. Bill has agreed to share them with you here.
Bill shows his students how to create a simple Box Stock for a part that consists of a 3D contoured surface using RhinoCAM®. In the following videos Bill shows them how to create 3 axis Roughing and Finishing toolpaths and how to generate the G-Code file that will control the CAMMaster CNC machine.
Bill shows how easy it is to create a 3 axis Horizontal Roughing operation on a part that consists of a 3D contoured surface using RhinoCAM®. In Horizontal Roughing; cutting is performed in XY planes at successive Z depth levels. This also referred to as Roughing in Levels.
Bill continues to on the previous two videos by showing students how to create a 3 Axis Parallel Finishing toolpath on a part that consists of a 3D contoured surface using RhinoCAM®. In Parallel Finishing the toolpath is projected onto the 3D model in parallel planes perpendicular to the XY plane.
Bill shows his students how to create a G-code file from the 3 axis toolpaths created in the previous 3 videos using RhinoCAM®. This post file is then sent to the CAMMaster CNC machine to instruct it how to cut the part.
