Event Details

Kikori CNC Router


Interested in learning how to use a CNC router like the Asylum's Blackfoot? This class will teach how to use these awesome and powerful computer-controlled machines through hands-on instruction. Each student will take the machine through an entire workflow cycle, from starting up and homing the machine to part removal and clean-up, leaving with a small product they made themselves. No software experience of any kind needed; a variety of product designs ready for milling will be available to choose from.

Class Goals:

Each student will:

  • Learn how to use EMC to run a CNC machine
  • Learn a variety of hold-down methods and how to determine which is best for a given job
  • Make a small widget on a CNC machine that they can keep




Materials will be provided by the instructor. The $10 materials fee can be paid directly to the instructor when students arrive for class.
