This course provides a project based overview of the basics of CNC Milling & Turning. Using CNC Machines in a hands-on environment, the student will write basic G-code programs, set-up parts, run programs and troubleshoot their functionality. PS1104 provides the "why" behind CNC machine operations so that student has the ability to make more intelligent decisions at the machine.
