Intro to CNC Routers | Port City Makerspace | Saturday, 08. December 2018

Take your 2D and 3D designs and turn it into an engraved piece of wood or plastic, and soft metals like brass and aluminum!
The focus of this class will be operation of the machines and we will talk about the design software we use called VCarve Pro. This program will turn your design into GCode, or instructions that the CNC machine can understand. Attendees will learn the process of turning a design into GCode, and if time permits everyone will get to carve a design.
If you would like to take a class that focuses on design after taking this class, please contact the organizer or the makerspace to arrange a one-on-one class for $80.
Other software we have available at the makerspace for making GCode: CamBam, F-Engrave, and Autodesk Fusion 360.
