Video Training

The following videos will show you exactly how to use the AutoTEMP system to make Grinding Templates.

  • We start with a simple 2″ x 2″ box, teach you how to zoom and scroll in the program, then progressively move along adding new components from the 140 tools TurboCAD has available.
  • Once you have completed the videos you will be able to scan wood samples or drawings and trace them using the lines and radii in TurboCAD. You will be able to generate dimensioned drawings and you will understand how to create a template with run off. We will show you how to nest the templates and how to run the templates in the AutoTEMP program. We will also have videos that show how to convert a template into a drawing for a pressure shoe and how to run the pressure shoe.
  • This video training is not designed to use all of the icons available in TurboCAD. It was designed to show you how to make templates, but does incorporate most of the icons you will need to do most drawings.
  • The program is only available to customers that have purchased one of the AutoTEMP systems.
