Module 2 - Tutorial

Note: You must thoroughly read Module 1 in order to follow the directions in this module.

This module will show you the basics of running a CNC machine. However, we will not go into detail about every aspect of the process. We will assume that you have had some instruction on writing NC code and how a milling machine works. You may need to refer to Module 1 or the HAAS manual as references.

One final note - these are very expensive and potentially dangerous machines so...

When in doubt, ASK FOR HELP!
