In this video, learn about thread milling.
- [Instructor] In this example movie, … I'm going to be teaching you how to create … a threadmilling operation in Mastercam, … so the first thing I need to do is define what things … I'd like to actually threadmill … and why you might want to choose threadmilling … over using maybe a tap. … Well, for this situation here, we've got this big hole … over here and generally a big tap that size … would be hard to get hold of, … and you probably don't have that in your shop. … You might be able to buy one, but you know I said, … it's going to be a little harder to find. … Something on the outside over here … is there's no taps for the outside of a part. … There might be a thread whirling thing, … or something along those lines, but in this case … most shops are not going to have a tool that can tap … or thread the exterior of a part, … so if you have that requirement you pretty much … have to deal with some type of a threadmilling operation. … Threadmilling's also very effective, … and it's actually very fast, right, …
