Shopbot CNC theory and practical


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.

You must be a paying member BEFORE signing up to this course. Your rsvp will automatically be changed to 'no' if this is not the case.

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.

It will be held in English.

Regular hand-washing will be encouraged. The machine, workshop computer and associated tools/rooms will be disinfected before the course starts. If you show ANY symptoms such as coughing, runny nose/fever etc you MUST NOT attend the course and change your RSVP asap so as to free your space for someone else.

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 you must bring/do for the course;

  • Eye and Hearing protection (Bitraf cannot provide due to covid-19, Clas Ohlsen and Jernia seem to have low stock so make sure to buy before the course

  • 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


We budget 10 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.

Thank you for your time and future attention.
