This class will be led by our very own Chris Oremus.
This introductory class will cover the following:
Shopbot operation: job setup, fixtures, tools, safety, cleanup
Job set up: coordinate reference, CNC principles, hot key shortcuts
Basic woodworking theory: which bits and why
Example runs for each student: each student will learn to load material, load a job, and will take home a design cut from 1/2in MDF
This class will not cover G-code programming or CAD/CAM, so we recommend that you have some basic familiarity with those concepts to get the most out of the class.
This is one class in a 3 part series that Chris is planning: the other two will cover the use of free CAD/CAM tools and advanced Shopbot design.
