In this class you will learn how to operate the ProCNC[masked]'x4' router safely. Everyone will get to choose from a set of sample projects and learn to use the Mach3 software package to send the GCode to the CNC.

This is not a class in 3D modeling nor in how to generate GCode from a 3D model. Rather, it assumes GCode has been produced to run on the CNC. To learn how to create models and GCode, refer to the tutorial videos below.
