This class introduces intermediate CAM users to Workholding at the Pier 9 CNC Workshop for the Haas Mill, DMS 5-axis Router, and Matsuura 5-axis Mill. You will learn how to set up your CAM files in Fusion 360 HSM using custom templates that include precise models of the inside of each machine. Then, you will learn how to set up your vise, load your stock, and set your Work Coordinate System to prepare for machining. This modular workholding system will provide you with a more efficient, effective, and flexible way to machine even the most complex five-axis part.
Lesson 1: Introduction to Workholding at the Pier 9 CNC Workshop
This class will introduce you to the Lang workholding system at Pier 9. You will learn how to set up your CAM files in Fusion 360 using a workholding template, and then how to set up the corresponding vise system on the DMS, Haas Mill, or Matsuura.
