This is the final session for those that have completed the ShopBot course, (or have demonstrated an adequate knowlege of CNC machinery).

Hopefully by now, you'll know how to operate the ShopBot CNC Router without causing damage to the machine, others, or yourself.
This brief class is the culmination of the previous weeks workshops, in which the basics of safety, operation, gCode, and LinuxCNC were covered.

You'll be required to set up the machine, secure your stock material, home the axis, set the origin, change tools, and of course safely run your code.

If you do not have some pre prepared gCode to run, you will be expected to create a shape based on the instructors specifications using the terminal inside LinuxCNC.

Following the successful completion of the program, you will be put forward for a username and password to access the ShopBot individually!

We're looking forward to seeing you there and getting you up and running with the ShopBot.
