About this Event
Please read this in it's entirety.
Have an interest in machining plastics and related materials?
Come get checked off on the Shapeokol 3XXL router driven CNC.
Class is in two portions - maybe 1 hour of classroom time and we will then head out the PigSig (Plastics Special Interest Group) area where everyone will take turns setting up the machine and running a test file which will be provided. So while the event reads 1 hour, I will spend all the time necessary for everyone to get checked off (about 3 hours max).
Note: This is a checkout of the machine use. I will not be teaching CAD/CAM programming and the generation of G-Code. You can use any program you choose so long as it generates the G-code in Shapeoko format. We will be using a canned program for the checkout NOT your own program.
Note 2: Why does this class need approval? First off, I don't allow standbys and we are limited by the number of people that can stand around the machine safely. I expect people to be adults and to be on time. If you sign up and don't show up - well short of an emergency it means you weren't really serious and your slot could have gone to someone else. that moves you to the BOTTOM of any future list. This class will only be offered by me every 6 weeks or so.
Special Considerations and Warnings
The 2nd part of the class will be at the machine in the PigSig area. Dress appropriately. Eye protection is required. Masks are up to your discretion.
