In Session 1 we learned about the history of drilling starting from the Industrial Revolution. Next, we learned about the saftey for the drill. For example, not to touch any moving parts, and not to try to fix the machine if it is not working.
In Session 3 we learned about the different measurements of a ruler. We also learned how to do manual milling. Finally we did manual milling a created a 2 by 1/4 by 2/14 square.
In Session 3 we milled two objects like a circle and a square. We also learned about the Cartesian Coordinate system, this is the way to describe the X, Y, and Z axis'. We also created real life examples for the system. And we also learned how the system relates to the Z- Mill.
In session 4 we practiced the Coordinate system on the computer. We also learned about the system that controls the Z-Mill and how it works. We also milled atoher simple shapes like an oval and a rectangle.
In session 5 we used the little plates to create a nameplate. We also got to create a little saying. We learned how to put the machine in the computer mode to create the nameplate.
In session 6 we used the Z-mill to mill a piece of clip art the we got to chose. We learned about the system. Also, we learned how to set the "home" point for the mill. This is where the Mill will start every time.
In Session 7 we took the post test for the module. We also got to complete the "challenge". The challenge was they gave us a picture and we had to mill it without any instructions.
A job that is associated with CNC Manufacturing is a CNC Machinist. This job requires someone to independently operate, set up, and troubleshoot CNC lathes. They will also have to operate a CNC horizontal milling machines.
