Description

The CNC Workshop workbook is designed to introduce students to CNC and provide them with an opportunity to learn and practice at their own pace. The CBT and software, CNC Workshop with TORCOMP CNCez Java Edition, enforces important concepts and allows students to create CNC programs and test them in a simulated manufacturing environment.

The CNC Workshop lessens the dependence on traditional classroom-style learning and maximizes the amount of hands-on CNC programming time available to each student. Using the simulation software allows the student to perform dry runs of all CNC programs in a simulated manufacturing environment. TORCOMP's CNCez Java Edition allows students to define and save their custom machine configurations, as well as the ability to display machined solid models of their programs. By using TORCOMP CNCez Java Edition to test a program, students need to use a CNC machine tool only for final confirmation of a design.
