Beginner ShopBot CNC: Basic Sign-Making
Get hands-on with the ShopBot to create your own sign while learning VCarve to explore the CNC possibilities!
Completion of ShopBot CNC Orientation class is required
Students will go through the full process of designing and milling a small wooden sign. We'll begin the class in the classroom creating your design in a Computer Aided Design (CAD) program and setting your tool paths in a Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) program. The last half of class will include taking the ‘part’ file and cutting it out on our ShopBot CNC machine. Students will go through the process of properly attaching the material to the work surface, ‘zeroing’ the machine, cutting the sign out, and finishing it.
