Public group
Location image of event venue


This course is necessary for new users of the Shopbot CNC at Bitraf to establish baseline knowledge & safety standards that everyone can expect from each other.

It will be held in English.

This course is for paying Bitraf members only. It's a free course, but if you rsvp 'yes' and don't actually show up, you'll be deducted 300 kroner extra, as an extra compensation to the course organizer.

Dette sikkerhetskurset er kun for betalende Bitraf-medlemmer. Det er et gratis kurs, men hvis du rsvp 'ja' og faktisk ikke dukker opp, blir du trukket 300kr ekstra, som en ekstra kompensasjon til kursarrangøren.

Things to have ready for course;
- Eye and Hearing protection (Bitraf will provide if you don't have)
- PC / Mac with vCarve installed (
- Dropbox installed (for transferring files to the CNC machine, memory cards/USB sticks are NOT to be used)
-Be part of Bitrafs 'google group' (!forum/bitraf)

We budget 9 hours for the course, so it is advisable to bring something to work on/keep yourself entertained during the practical section.

We start with the theory in the meeting room on the 4th floor of Bitraf and move to the practical section in the workshop after.

It's an advantage if you look through the Shopbot tutorial videos:

- Back to the Basics
- StartingPoints & Z Heights

Upon completion of course you will have Shopbot CNC access via the p2k16 ‘TOOLS’ system. This enables use of the machine to be logged.

Sign up to the waitlist only if you're prepared to check the event daily to see if a place has become available, and have the possibility to turn up at short notice if somebody drops out.

Thank you for your time and future attention.
