Learn how to use a CNC router to cut 2D and 3D objects out of a variety of materials.
The classes will be held on February 2nd and 3rd. CNC Introduction and Check-out on Saturday, and CAM / gcode creation on Sunday. The schedule will be 10am – 4pm both days. Intro to CNC Class Sign up here. It’s $25 per class / day or $40 for both classes.
VERY IMPORTANT! if you want to be able to generate your own gcode (so you can cut out something you want) you will need to take both classes, The CNC introduction class is just to demonstrate safe and proficient use of the machines, and everyone will be cutting a pre-selected file that I have prepared. To cut your own creations you will need to take both classes,
Intro to CNC, CNC overview and safe use check-out
Attendees will be provided a 2D gcode file, and need to demonstrate proficiency, by safely cutting the part on the machine.
Intro to CAM, 2D and 3D Computer Aided Machining (CAM)
Attendees will be given an overview on how to use 2D and 3D CAM software to generate the gcode or tools paths that the CNC machines use to cutout parts. Please see the important notice below on how to acquire the software before class so you are ready to go!
