Lab Objective The objective of the lab was to create a 3-D Sketch of a part and mill it into a 3.5" x 2" x 0.438" rectangular plastic block using Autodesk Inventor, SURFCAM and the Denford milling machine. Applicable Theory The theory used for this project is basic measurement theory. Description of Tools The tools used for this lab included Autodesk Inventor, SURFCAM program, the Denford milling machine, and the measurement tools to detail the accuracy of the milled piece. SURFCAM is a program that allows the user to design or alter the part with the required machining conditions while also creating a tool path that is subsequently converted into readable text for the milling machine. The Denford milling machine is a small desktop CNC machine used for creating our plastic parts. Procedure 1. First, the 3-D part was created in Autodesk Inventor to specified dimensions 2. Next, the part was then transferred into the SURFCAM program.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
