    Default SmartCam-MasterCam difference.

    A question to all of you that use either Cam system.
    As most of you know, I teach shops how to program Fanuc lathes and mills with G Codes.
    I have a chance to go to a very unusual training job.
    Its on the island of Guam, its totally out in the middle of nowhere, about a 1000 miles past Hawai.
    The machine are a Fanuc controlled lathe and a Mill, it should be no problem to train the people how to program and produce parts.
    But they do produce 1 or 2 parts at a time and already have either Smart or MasterCam.
    How close art they to each other and what is a reasonable training time?
    Are there any training videos available?
    Any help is appreciated.

    SmartCAM's website provides excellent training support here:

    If your client has purchased SMA support, the site also has great video tutorials.

    There are also a few youtube type videos like this one that can be found
    Just the opinions of an old fool
