CNC302: CNC ShopBot SBU
Class Number 214-53685
In this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, learn to use the computer-controlled (CNC) ShopBot router to cut objects, parts or art designed in 2D or 3D CAD. This powerful tool is perfect for rapid prototyping and digital fabrication. Create parts with complex curves and surfaces from most woods, plastics, foams, and other composites (no metal on this machine). This class teaches the use of the machine, but does not cover CAD drawing or toolpathing. VCarve Pro (CNC 201) is a good starting point for people new to CAD and CAM.
Materials fee: Includes materials for the class project and a router bit for each student to keep.
Project: Wooden gear
Prerequisites Use of CAD and CAM software like VCarve Pro - CNC 201, Basic Woodshop SBU - WOD101 are recommended.
