Event Details

Tormach CNC Milling Machine Training

The Tormach CNC mill is unlike any other tool we have at the labs!

One of the greatest benefits of membership at MakeIt Labs is our sense of community. By joining our training program you will be trained by our Tormach training group, whom have collaboratively created the curriculum. At the end of your apprenticeship you will be proficient to successfully use the Tormach and mentor future trainees as part of our community.  

As part of our path to Tormach Training, training will include:

  1. Computer Aided Design (CAD) training using Fusion 360 CAD.

  2. A “Design for Machining” class.

  3. Manual mill training to learn the basics of tooling, fixturing, feeds and speeds, and machining approach.

  4. Computer Aided Machining (CAM) training using Fusion 360 CAM.

  5. Training specific to operating the Tormach mill and making your first part.

  6. A mandatory “apprenticeship” period with a mentor.

If you are proficient in Fusion 360 CAD we offer for you to test out for a reduction in the total package price. Members who have already taken the Manual Milling Class before or those who have tested out are required to attend the Re-certification session.  Anyone wishing to test out of the CAD class or the Milling Class will need to do so before the classes start in order to receive discount code(s) before you purchase.   

Consumables for the CNC training are required, we are currently pricing (estimating $50-$75) of what is needed and will provide a list and for member convenience to purchase through MakeIt. Notifications will be made when the consumables can be purchased.

Revenue from your ticket purchases are utilized for maintenance, future improvements, and tooling/equipment upgrades for the Tormach.
