NX Lathe Programming Class
 

This lathe programming course takes a part assembly from start to finish. After completing Lathe Fundamentals from Applied CAx and Sherpa Design, students will be able to take a solid model prepped for a 2-axis lathe, and confidently and efficiently program it from start to finish.

Trainees are invited to use project examples from their current workload. However due to time constraints, this is dependent on the complexity of the part. If needed Applied CAx will supply a training part file.

As trainees progress through the course they will be programming their exercise model, and by the end of the third day, they will have a fully programmed part file.

What trainees should be able to accomplish after taking the class:
After completing Lathe Fundamentals from Applied CAx, students will be able to take a solid model prepped for a 2-axis lathe, and confidently and efficiently program it from start to finish.

Student Prerequisites: CAM fundamentals recommended, but not required. This training course is designed for those new to Siemens NX CAM.
