Fab Lab Foundations 2: Introduction to the CNC Router @ AS220 Labs
Jun 23 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Saturdays, March 24, 31, 2pm-6pm: $100

Register Here 

This workshop is for anyone interested in using a CNC Router for digital fabrication, specifically the ShopBot machine for computer-controlled cutting and routing. The course covers an introduction to the ShopBot, Computer-Aided Design software to design projects for the machine, creation of 2D tool paths for the machine using PartWorks, and basic machine operation and safety.  You will learn how to safely operate the machine on your own, so that you may use the machine independently after completing the training and signing up for membership.

Our machine is a ShopBot PRS standard 96 with a cutting area of 96″ (x-axis) x 48″ (y-axis) x 6″ (z-axis). The machine is capable of machining 2D parts (profile, pockets, drilling) and making 3D carvings.  This workshop only covers 2D tool paths, not 3D carvings.

This workshop consists of two parts, 1 3-hour instructional session and a followup session on the machine where you run a project on the machine.

Prerequisites
While it’s not mandatory, we strongly encourage students to have experience with vector design. Not familiar with using computers at all? We also offer a basic computer training workshop

Mondays, July 23rd and 30th, $125
Instructor: Britton Kroessler
Learn how to solder and program electronics in this introductory workshop. The price of the workshop covers the cost of the kit being built, soldering equipment is also provided. We will be assembling an Educato Kit: an Arduino-compatable microcontroller that is perfect for beginners and prototyping new projects.
The first session will go over each electronic component used in assembly, the layout of the board, and troubleshooting to ensure proper assembly. The second session will go over reading schematics, the basics of electric theory, the Arduino language, programming and circuit assembly on a breadboard.
Participants will leave with soldering skills and a fancy new tool to add to their arsenal of creativity. With this knowledge, you will also be able to make simple repairs on electronics that were once thought broken for good. Educato Kit is provided.

  • Two – Session workshop Offered in June, July, August and September!! 

    Learn how to use the laser cutter to cut or etch wood, plastics, papers or textiles AND learn how to use the vinyl cutter to make stickers, signs, and more! This class will cover the basics of using the laser and vinyl cutter safely, techniques for working with different materials, and software tools for preparing work for the cutters.

    This is a hands-on workshop; bring a project if you like!

    Our laser cutter is an Epilog Mini 24 The work area is 24″ x 12″, and it can hold items up to 8″ tall. We also have a cylindrical attachment that allows you to etch cylinders such as glassware. AS220’s vinyl cutter is a Roland Camm-1 CX-24 and can take vinyl rolls of 15″ and 24″ in width.

    After taking the workshop, you will have a solid understanding of what the machine can do and how to design a project. Students will be certified to use the Labs’ laser cutter after completing this follow up session.
