Hurco 5-Axis Training Course
This training class covers conversational programming and the basic rules and interactions for 5-axis machines. Students are guided through a course of programming examples from basic to more complex.
Basics of Universal Rotary
An explanation of the term Universal Rotary and understanding the “Righthand Rule” for programming 5-axis machines.
Basics of Transform Plane
What is a Transform Plane and how is it programmed. This video will show the basics of Transform Plane and how it is used when programming a 5-axis machine.
5-Axis Part Programming 1
In this video we program features on the top, front, and right side of the workpiece using Transform Plane.
5-Axis Part Programming 2
How to program chamfers (or similar features) using both the end of an endmill vs. the side of the endmill. There are also good visuals that provide a deeper understanding of how to control the temporary origin point when using Transform Planes.
5-Axis Part Programming 3
This video will explain the programming of compound angles, when the rotation isn’t a simple 90° rotation around a single axis, and how to program subsequent 3-axis blocks.
5-Axis Part Programming 4
This video will explain how to control the orientation of features on a part, by learning how to control the orientation of the transformed Workplane.
Rotary Position After Transform Plane
This video discusses how to use a Rotary Position to return to work on the top side of a part after ending a previous Transform Plane block.
Transform Plane Groups
This video will discuss Transform Plane Groups and how they can be used to pattern a transform plane around a part, and eliminate the need to program redundant transform planes for repeating geometries on a workpiece.
