Intro to CNC Router @ AS220 Industries
Nov 9 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Processed with VSCO with 4 preset

Get certified to use the 4’x8’ ShopBot for medium and large format woodworking projects.

  • Saturday November 9 + 16, 2-6pm

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 VCarve Pro, 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.

Instructor: Larry Zagorsky

Prerequisites

While it’s not mandatory, we strongly encourage students to have experience with vector design.
