CNC 201: Maker Foundation (Core) with Debra Crane | Sept 12 & 13
Woodcraft of Nashville
Thu, Sep 12 9:00 am


This core CNC class begins with a quick review of CNC / VCarve basics but quickly launches into new concepts, including using & modifying 2D clipart, bitmap tracing & clean up offsets and arrays. Students will also learn how to create original drawings combining open and closed vectors then modifying them using node editing. Students will setup several new tool definitions crucial for more common CNC applications. New 2.5D toolpaths include: drilling, texturing, fluting and (if time permits) prism. A portion of class time will be reserved for actual CNC machining. Projects will include coasters, cutting boards, a simple game and (if time permits) a candle holder. NOTE: This foundation course is required for future CNC classes. Recommended Reading: "CNC Router Essentials" Part 1: Thursday, September 12, 9 AM - 5 PM Part 2: Friday, September 13, 9 AM - 5 PM
