Summary

Student-friendly graphical displays are emphasized in lieu of long text and definitions. Includes an overview of the process of generating a word address program. Examples provide step-by-step instructions with graphical displays. Eliminates flipping between pages by featuring all explanations on the same page as the example. Contains exercises at the end of each chapter. Features a process plan for many machining exercises to indicate the machining operations to be performed and the tools to be used. The enclosed CD contains a student version of Mastercam Mill X. The CD also contains the same examples used in the text so students can practice select exercises.
