CNC Software Inc. is offering several Mastercam University courses for free to the public through June 30, 2020 along with a free download of Mastercam Home Learning Edition. 

Mastercam University is an online tool that allows learners to access and complete CAD/CAM courses at their own pace. Each course comes with learning objectives, assessment questions and challenges for online learners to achieve.

Courses free to the public include:

  • STEM: Principles of Machining
  • Mastercam Essentials
  • 2D Mill (Mastercam 2019 and 2020)
  • 3D Mill (Mastercam 2019 and 2020)
  • Lathe (Mastercam 2019 and 2020)

These classes are available at signup.mastercam.com/free-mastercam-training.

The company has also taken extra steps to accommodate the educators who are now working at home. Educators and students will still have complete access to the Mastercam University courses available to the public, but they will also receive extra material with each course. These additional virtual teaching tools refocus the courses for educators by stressing STEM fundamentals and providing practical work-from-home CAD/CAM exercises. Educators will also have access to three downloadable Quick Part Series lessons: one for Mill, one for Lathe and one for Router. These resources are available at signup.mastercam.com/free-mastercam-training-education.
