VR Career Simulation
In the Manual Machinist simulation, explorers will go through the process of working on a large manual lathe and manual milling machine. You will be tasked with reading and interpreting design drafts that display what the user will need to do. During the simulation you also will need to clean, set up and make two different types of cuts using a lathe machine by rotating and moving the cutting tool around using multiple hand wheels. In addition, explorers will also need to clean, set up and drill 4 holes using a manual milling machine by adjusting its location on the pallet of this machine using cranks and levers.
Machinists set up and operate a variety of machine tools to cut or grind metal, plastic or other materials to make or modify parts or products with precise dimensions. Machining and tooling inspectors inspect machined parts and tooling in order to maintain quality control standards. They are employed by machinery, equipment, motor vehicle, automotive parts, aircraft and other metal products manufacturing companies and by machine shops.
