CAD/CAM Process Chain

Event type Tutorium (Master)
Contact person Gilbert Ely Engert M.Sc.
Registration Every summer semester in the period from August to September. The exact date will be announced shortly before the start of the semester.
Duration: 2 weeks
(block course, full-time)
Participation Requirements Registration period April 01 – April 30. A maximum of 30 participants is possible.

Participation in the tutorial is only possible if you have registered in due time via e-mail to .

You should only register for the course and the exam in TUCaN once you have received a confirmation email from the department. If you only register via TUCaN and are not registered at the department, your registration is considered invalid and will be removed from the TUCaN registration. If there are more registrations than the maximum number of participants, a selection will be made with regard to the order of registration.
Note The tutorial takes place in presence and is divided into a CAD and a CAM part. The CAD part is carried out by the PLCM and the CAM part by the PTW in the Test Field for Manufacturing Technologies (TEC-Lab).
Intention: changing demands on the professional field of engineering
  • Team spirit
  • Interdisciplinary cooperation between production (PTW) and development (PLCM)
  • modern communication and working techniques
Main aims The aim of the CAD/CAM process chain tutorial is to provide an introduction to the manufacturing module of NX and, in particular, to teach the basics, methods and techniques for generating NC control data. The tutorial includes an introduction to CAM techniques, such as the selection of technology data, strategies, tools etc. The course is held in cooperation with the PLCM department.

  • Getting acquainted with current challenges from practice
  • Deepening of the theoretical training through practical qualification
  • Theory and practical exercises on the CAD/CAM process chain
  • Construction of a CAD model
  • Definition of process parameters
  • CAM programming
  • Derivation of the NC program
  • Setting up a post-processor with machine model
  • Validation through simulation
  • Setting up a post-processor with machine model
