** Note: This class is now IN PERSON at the makerspace. You can use our computers, or a Windows/Linux laptop of your own (or mac running an emulator).**
In this class, you will learn the fundamentals of VCarve Pro. You’ll learn how to create paths (and holes and letters and pockets) that can be sent to robots to cut into wood (including our wood CNC mill). We’ll teach you about the different cutting bits that are used, what you’ll need to consider in designing your cuts, and the settings you’ll use for different types of bits and material.
This class is a pre-requisite for the 2/2 Wood CNC Certification. At the completion of this online VCarve course, you can schedule a CNC mill machine certification with your instructor that will take place physically at the makerspace at a time that works for you. The machine certification is an additional cost of $50 for materials and maintenance (note: not eligible for free class coupons).
