This workshop is for anyone interested in using a CNC Router for digital fabrication, specifically the ShopBot machine for computer-controlled cutting and routing.
In this two week course, we will meet for two 3-hour sessions – a total of 6 instructional hours. 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 ParkWorks, and finally basic operations and safety on the machine.
This workshop only covers 2D Tool Paths (Profile, Pockets, Drilling). This workshop will teach you how to safely operate the machine on your own, so that you may use the machine independently after completing the training.
