<p>ContentsUsing Tutorials Tutorial 1in mm Tutorial 1in inch Tutorial 2 Tutorial 3 Tutorial 4 Tutorial 5 Tutorial 6 Tutorial 7 Tutorial 8 Tutorial 9 Tutorial 10</p> <p>Using tutorialsThe tutorials guide you through the actual programming process for a few sample parts. When you complete all the tutorials you will be able to use CAPSturn independently without any guidance. To get the tutorials, click on the tutorials book in the help. A list of tutorials indicating the topics covered in it appears. Double click on the first tutorial. Perform the actions listed. At the end of each section, you will find a Back button which leads you to the previous section and a Next button which leads you to the next. Clicking on underlined text leads to additional information on the topic. If you need information not available in the Tutorial, use the context sensitive Help in the software. The programming process consists of the following 8 steps:</p> <p>Steps Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 Step 8</p> <p>Operation Start new program Define work setup Draw the part Draw the Blank Perform Machining Select Machine View tool path Generate NC program</p> <p>Menu option File Geometry Geometry Machining Machines Tool path NC program</p> <p>You will notice that till View tool path the order of the steps is the same as in the main menu and icon bar. To do a program you will be following this order from Left to Right.</p> <p>Tutorial 1In millimeters</p> <p>This tutorial illustrates, Creating geometry. Selecting tools.
