FabShops - Intro to CNC Routers (Shapeoko)


Learn how to use the OEDK's CNC Routers (X-Carve) to cut through materials like wood and acrylic that are too thick for the laser cutter. You can make a variety of 2D and 3D designs on a CNC router and it is especially useful for prototyping and fabrication. Students will get the opportunity to learn how to use Easel, set up the Shapeoko, and make their own designs to take home.
