This class will introduce you to the ShopBot CNC Router in the Wood shop as well as VCarve software.

You will learn basic operations of this machine with an emphasis on safety. With the successful completion of this class you will be certified to use Maker Works' ShopBot CNC Router with a Maker Works membership.
