I am doing programming using Master Cam and Delcam Since last few years . I can work on Auto Cad and Solid works ( mostly 2d , learning more now ). I have been trying to find out programming courses for cnc laser , plasma , turret punch
in and around melbourne , i know that with all the skills i got , i can easily program cnc lasers , plasma , routers and turret punch . I was wondering if anyone knows about programming courses just let me know .
Not sure if such a thing exists........
Many years ago (When I was a lad..... ) I used to programme a Turret Punch machine on the machine inputting the Gcode line by line.
You learned the coding inside and out for that particular machine.
The company then upgraded to an offline system which allowed you to write the code on a PC and it then gave a 2D simulation of what the part would look like.
Latest programming systems are all basically just 2D CAD systems that you draw the part and the system does 99% of the rest.
All the new 'CNC programmers' I know would not know a G90 from a M00
A lot of the systems today are made by the machines own software like Trumf have there Tops programming system for there Punch, Laser and Water machines.
There are a few 'aftermarket' programming systems like Radan etc
Hope this helps......
