WKS: The CNC WorkShop 2015 - Pre-Registration

After a two-year hiatus, the CNC Workshop has returned better than ever! The CNC Workshop hosted by TechShop Detroit, is the place for home CNC enthusiasts to go to see machine demonstrations, attend informative seminars, and interact with fellow hobbyists. Come and see everything the CNC Workshop and TechShop have to offer, including numerous classes, seminars, a raffle and a swap meet!

This year the format will be similar to the past years- we will have three days of continuous seminars about CNC aimed at the home shop user. We have classrooms ranging from a tiered auditorium for over 150 people to small conference rooms. We will have an area for commercial vendors to show their products and an area for individuals to exhibit their projects.

*AGENDA:

Wednesday, June 17 - Friday, June 19: Main CNC Workshop sessions, classes, exhibits and vendor displays.

Saturday, June 20: Swap Meet

*Please Note: The Agenda is currently evolving and is subject to change as the Workshop approaches.
