Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Machining aims to teach digital subtractive production and prototyping by utilizing Parsons’ Haas and Roland milling centers and AutoDesk Fusion 360 CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) software. Through both individual and group-based projects students will design, plan, and machine objects of their own creation out of metal and other rigid materials. This course will introduce the various aspects that inform the design and fabrication of a CNC machined object: DFMA (design for manufacturing and assembly), operational set-up & organization, cutting strategy, bit selection, material qualities, machine setup & offsets, workholding, measuring and quality control. Focus is on batch, multiple, or mass production.

Open to: Graduate students and upper-level undergraduates by permission only. Pre-requisite(s): none.
