CAMWorks CNC Milling 101 - Online

CAMWorks CNC Milling 101 - Online training
The goal of the class is to give all the tools between SOLIDWORKS/CAMWorks and Machining 101 to successfully cut a part. We plan to reference CAMWorks a great deal during this class, but this is not intended to replace any CAMWorks specific training. CAMWorks examples are in regard to everything above to help explain things.
