Engraving things by hand came be fun produce very beautiful art. Sometimes it can be a little hard with a lot of detail or if there are a lot of repetitive patterns. Enter the world of CNC Engraving. You can take your 2D designs, even from a scanned drawing, 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 different programs you can use to make GCode for the machines and do some test and examples if time permits. If you would like to take a class that focuses on design after taking this class, please email email@example.com and he will schedule a one-on-one class for $60.
The software we have available at the makerspace for making GCode is VCarve Pro, CamBam, F-Engrave, and Autodesk Fusion 360.
