A start-to-finish rundown of the ShopSabre CNC router. At the end of this class you will be able to take a 2D sketch or a 3D surface model and make a product on the ShopSabre Router with instructor supervision until you are cleared for tool sign off and independent use.
- Sign off: ShopSabre CNC Safety*
- Prerequisite: Nova Labs Green Orientation (if sign off desired)**
- Safety Dress Code: Woodshop dress code enforced. Comfortable closed-toed shoes; natural fiber clothing (wool, cotton, leather); no loose clothing; and hair and beard tied back).
This course will show you how to cut 3D objects up to 55X48IN wide and 7IN thick. You will be making a Nova-Labs coaster out of wood. If you would like to use your own wood, please bring a piece no less than 6x6IN and no more than 3/8IN thick. If you have a specific project in mind, we will have the opportunity to go over "next steps" to get you moving in the right direction. More information can be found on the Nova-Labs Class Page (http://www.nova-labs.org/wiki/education/shopsabre_cnc_101).
*After taking this class, you are able to use the tools during our supervised CNC Open Office Hours. When you are ready, you can demonstrate your acumen with the tools and receive your full, documented sign off so you can use the tool independently. This process can be fast or slow, but it will mean you are a safe and practiced CNCer! Additionally, the sign off is available to Nova Labs Associate and Key Members only. You must be and remain an ACTIVE member to use this tool!!
**You may take this class before taking GO but you may not use the tools listed except when supervised by a certified adult or key member. You have 30 days to take GO or the sign off is forfeited.
