From the Back Cover
The CNC Workshop, the only CNC-related book with simulation software, is a flexible, unique package where the programming code that is learned and generated by the reader can either be sent to an actual machine or to the simulation software. It is an excellent simulation and animation tool for milling and turning, which can be used to test existing programs or write and edit new ones. This book covers the basics of Computer Numerical Control programming, including step-by-step coverage of machining processes, fundamentals of CNC and basic CNC programming concepts. It can be used as a stand-alone book or can be used as a supplement. The book and software package is an excellent instruction tool for CNC programming. Chapter topics include Introduction to CNC; CNC Fundamentals and Vocabulary; Programming Concepts; Interactive Simulation Software; CNC Milling; Turning; Introduction to CAD/CAM; Workbook Exercises. For readers interested in Numerical Control Programming, Automated Manufacturing, and Controls/Systems Process.
