A Study on CNC Machine Training Based on Virtual Reality Technology
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) is the automation of machine tools that executes computers pre-programmed sequences of machine control commands. CNC course usually taught in senior high school or vocational school. There are many precautions when learning CNC machines. CNC operation is very danger, any slight wrong many cause injury or damage the machine. This study develops a system that combines virtual reality (VR) and CNC machines (called CNC VR system) that allows students to practice well without fear of failure. The system transfers the scores of the exercises to the web platform for the teacher to grasp which part of the student is not familiar with and strengthen guidance. This study also developed a 360-degree film by using Cardboard system to show the demo video which recorded by the teacher. In order to prove the effectiveness of the system, the study applies the technology acceptance model (TAM) to test acceptances of the proposed scheme. The experimental results show that the proposed CNC VR system has a positive relationship with the students’ learning attitude.
