CAMWorks Training Class Descriptions

CAMWorks Beginning Post Processing

“This four (4) session, beginner-level class will introduce students to CAMWorks Post Processor fundamentals. Instruction will begin with an overview of CAMWorks Universal Post Generator – “UPG,” for short. We will explore the UPG’s user interface, features, benefits, and limitations. Students will learn how to create new post processors based on provided templates by executing various exercises that demonstrate how templates can be customized to user requirements. Upon completion of the class, students will be prepared to enroll in the “Intermediate Post Processing,” which will expand to cover more complicated post processors using the powerful CAMWorks post processor language.”

CAMWorks Intermediate Post Processing

This class will introduce students to intermediate-level development and editing of CAMWorks post processors via the EC-Editor. Instruction will begin with a brief overview of post-processing fundamentals, followed by exploration of EC-Editor’s user interface, features, benefits, and limitations. Students will learn how to navigate Template and Library files (SRC and LIB, respectively), modify existing post processors based on existing templates, and implement commonly requested post processor features. This intermediate level class assumes that students will have attended the “Introduction to CAMWorks Post Processing” class or have a greater than “basic” understanding of the CAMWorks post processing environment. If you have not been able to attend the live session of the Introduction to CAMWorks Post Processing class, you may also watch and thoroughly review the recorded sessions of the previous class from the Reseller area of the CAMWorks Website. Questions and comments are encouraged to maximize your investment in training. This class will be taught over four (4) sessions, where each session is two (2) hours long.

CAMWorks Advanced Post Processing – I

This class will introduce students to advanced-level editing of CAMWorks post processors via the EC-Editor. Instruction will begin with a brief overview of post-processing fundamentals and EC-Editor’s user interface. We will explore the following topics:

  • Arrays
  • Query commands
  • “GET” commands (GETOOLS, GETMCS)
  • File Management (opentxt, settxt, closetxt, killsysfile, etc.)
  • Checking motion (syscanned)

Students must have attended the “CAMWorks Intermediate Post Processing” class, and/or, have a thorough understanding of post processing. Questions and comments are encouraged to maximize your investment in training. We’ll have four (4) sessions; each session will be two (2) hours.
