Hello


thank you for enterin in my post


I'm a CNC Miller with more than 5 yearsof experience with Heidehain System and I know just a bit also FanucSystem but I've never done off-line programming


I'm looking for a good CNC HeidenhainCAD/CAM course on-line, but it shouldn't be very expencive, and itshould provide also a software about it


Unfortunatelly I've just lost my jobfor redundancy so if I can get a reduction for unmployed people willbe still better however if it costs 100 even without facilitationwill be fine for me as long it is a good course


any information about it will be veryappreciative


thank you in adavnce for your help

AutoCad (http://www.lynda.com/AutoCAD-2011-tutorials/essential-training/61615-2.html) Lynda learning. Costs about 20 a month all good video tutorials. You can do the full course on the AutoCad 30 day trial.

I don't know of any free cad/cam packages. But you can download Rhino cad for free, it has a limited number of saves, but the tutorial is pretty good.
For the cam side you can download a free version of NCGcam. This is a great bit of software. You can't post process with the free version but the tutorial is good. You can import and export iges files between the two programmes.
