The Shopbot is a CNC (computer numeric control) router that allows the user to cut out a wide variety of 2D and 3D designs into wood, plastic, foam, and some composite materials. It can be used to repeatably create intricate parts with tight tolerances.
In this class, we will show you how to safely operate the ShopBot and machine a small lidded box we have designed ahead of time. While softwares like Fusion 360, SolidWorks, and V-Carve can be used to generate part files and tool paths for the ShopBot, this class only covers use of the machine. Check online for design resources and be sure to ask a staff member if you have questions about your work!
Course length is 3 hours.
