Tuesday, November 22, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CST)
Class title: CNC Engraving with Inkscape
Requirements: A laptop/netbook running Windows/MacOS/Linux with Inkscape
In the first portion of the class, we'll explore the Hershey Text and
Gcodetools extensions for Inkscape, then we'll create some art to engrave.
If you have existing vector or raster artwork you'd like to engrave, please
bring it to class. Once we're finished with the designs, we'll render
Gcode, the step needed to tell our CNC router what to do.
In the second portion of the class, we'll be using the CNC router (driven by
EMC2 (www.linuxcnc.org) to create real-world objects engraved with our
Inkscape art. Blanks of pine (3.5" by 8") will be provided for engraving.
