The CNC Academy E-learning Center
We at CNCSimulator.com believe that great education is the key to success at any workshop. CNC programmers and operators need to be well prepared before starting to handle expensive and sometimes dangerous machines. This is why we have started the CNC Academy. Here we are going to collect all those tutorials, hints, tips and tricks you find on our site at one place. Our virtual teacher Tom is going to hold e-learning classes on different topics and whether you are at a school, a university, a workshop or a hobbyist at home, we promise you will find something new to learn here. The CNC Academy is going to grow over time. Make sure you pay a visit every now and then to get the latest.Your voice counts! Take Our Survey!
|A short note about updates: |
We are constantly improving the program by releasing updates with new functionality and improved performance. Sometimes the look of things change. For example, the machine selector dialog does not look like it did originally, settings has been added and new menu functions as well. Be prepared that everything in the classes and tutorials does not look exactly like the current version, but the main function is the same. If you have questions about these changes, let us know and we will try to clarify.
