CNC Router Fundamentals
Make Nashville
Sun, Dec 09 12:00 pm

This class will teach the basic principles of CNC routing. Starting from a 3D model, students will learn how to turn that into a tool path (a plan for carving), how to set up the X-Carve CNC, and how to set the machine in motion.  We’ll also cover how CNCing is different from and similar to 3D printing.  Also covered will be software recommendations and additional materials students will want to acquire based on the types of things they want to create. Please Bring: Dust mask, hearing protection, safety glasses if you have them. Make Nashville has a limited supply of disposable ones. Optional: ⅛ or ¼ inch shank end mills. Optional: A laptop loaded with the 3D modeling software of your choice (Autodesk 360 and Sketchup are good options)
