COM201: Adobe Illustrator for CNC
Class Number 253-112092

Makers and designers alike agree that vector drawing is the starting point of all CNC fabrication.

Adobe Illustrator is an extremely powerful 2D vector graphics drawing program -- almost any product or invention that you imagine can begin in Illustrator. By following the pathways offered in this class, you will be able to export your files to any of the CNC machines in the TechShop arsenal.

You will learn the basics of the interface and navigation, effective drawing techniques, converting bitmaps to vectors in one step, creating clean and optimized vectors, and the most efficient techniques to prepare your files for CNC operations. You will also learn how each of the CNC machines at TechShop will work with your file to create your projects.

This class provides the foundation of skills for the following classes: CNC Concepts, CAD/CAM, ShopBot SBU, Tormach SBU, CNC Vinyl Cutter SBU, Laser Cutter SBU, and Waterjet SBU.
