OptiPro offers a wide range of training classes to accommodate students with all different types of skill levels, including:

  • Beginner Mill - Teaches the basic concepts of the Mastercam interface and progresses to geometry definition and 2D Toolpath generation. Topics covered include tool and material libraries, 2 1/2 axis (Mill Level 1) machining functions including contouring, pocketing, drilling, c-hooks, customization, and verification.
  • Advanced Mill - Designed from the experienced Mastercam user, Advanced Mill increases the student's knowledge of surface creation, wireframe, spline and surface manipulation to obtain better toolpaths, better surface finishes, and quality surface models. All aspects of 3D surface machining are covered. This includes 3D roughing routines, parallel, radial, plunge, pocket, restmill, project, contour, and flowline. All aspects of 3D surface finishing are covered including flowline, leftover, contour, high speed, pencil trace, slope analysis, scallop, and blended. The HST toolaths will all be introduced.
  • Multi-Axis Milling - Introduces the concepts and principles of Multi-Axis machining. Topics covered include identifying common multi-axis machine tool configurations, understanding the difference between multi-axis positioning and simultaneous toolpaths, understanding different types of multi-axis toolpaths, capabilities and advantages, and machine simulation options.
  • Lathe Beginner - Intended for Mastercam Lathe users who have completed Introduction to Mastercam. Items covered include roughing, finishing, facing, grooving, threading, drilling, configuration, tool and material libraries, and parting.
