Free Video Training: Lathe Tutorial

Update: 25 full-length Video Training Tutorials are available in our X4 Multimedia Bundle! For more information, see this post. Click here to purchase. 

We have been getting a good number of calls lately from individuals looking to learn Mastercam for the first time or become familiar with a newer version. A common thread amongst these and other conversations is that people enjoy being shown how something is done. Of course, to each their own when it comes to learning something new but video content is often a welcome addition.

That is precisely why we have video content available for Milling applications Mill-Level-1-&-Level-3-CDsusing Mastercam V9 - X3 as well as X4 videos which will be available once the software is released. But the question keeps cropping up:

“What about Lathe?”

Not wanting to keep Lathe users in the dark, we will be releasing a free Lathe video tutorial exclusively on this blog. Consider this a little ‘thank you’ for visiting and a precursor to what will be a complete offering for X4.

What we have for you today are 8 video segments that walk through Tutorial 4 from the Mastercam X3 Lathe Training Tutorial book.

Hint: Once you select a video below, hit the “full size” button above the video before playing it for the best viewing experience.

  10. Hi guys, these video's are a great help. could i ask a help question. On the part 1 vid i have drawn the parallel lines and the -2o deg line but when i try the last line off the -20 my cursor will not snap to the intersection. im using mcx4 lathe l1. sorry for a very beginner question. thanks in advance.

  11. Thanks for the great feedback everyone! Et bienvenue :)

    No question is too "beginner"! Everyone starts somewhere. When your cursor will not snap as expected, the best place to look is your autocursor settings. To set it up to snap to an intersection, you must first be using a command (such as create line, line parallel etc) then click on the "exclamation point" button and enable "intersection". Hope that helps!
