Would you like to make some custom shelving? How about using free easy software and a robot to do so? In this three hour course you will learn how to do just that. First, you'll make a simple box of a specific size in Google Sketchup. Next, we'll take a 3D form and turn it into interlocking flat shapes using 123D Make. After using Inkscape and Draftsight to convert the files, we'll then take those shapes into CamBam and create tool paths for a CNC router. If you'd like to mill out these parts at the Asylum, you can sign up for milling time (either individually or in groups) separately.
This class will familiarize students with the basics of 123D Make and CamBam free.
Familiarity with Microsoft Windows.
Computers with software installed will be provided, but students may bring their own.
Judah Sher has a BS in industrial design, and has been building and using CNC routers for two years. He has recently started Sindrian Arts, a business devoted to selling CNC machine kits and CNC-made products.
