Introduction to CNC Routing

Introduction to CNC Routing:

Have you ever wanted to cut something out with pin point accuracy? Perhaps do you have a project that would look so sweet if you had a CNC Router. Or maybe you just want to learn how to operate a CNC machine!


Our introduction to CNC routing is perfect for anyone who want to lean how to use our 3HP CNC router. The Class will focus on:

  • How to import a file (.mmg). We encourage members to use Vcarve Pro, ask if you were not given a client license.
  • How to safety operate the machine.
  • How, when and why to safety change cutting tools

We strongly recommend students explore VCarve Pro before taking the class. Here is a link to download the program.

Our CNC router has a 36″ x 24″ cutting area, and a 3HP water cooled spindle…All members are required to take this class before operating the machine. You will be given a cutting bit during the class to keep. Email us if you want more cutting bits.
