WRK150: Learning Shapeoko CNC Routers

Overview
Outcomes
Enrollment

A computer numerical control (CNC) router is an amazing tool for any maker, and can allow you to accurately cut and carve a variety of materials. These machines are usually 3-axis machines and come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. They typically consist of a router, which spins the carving bit, and three stepper motors, which allow a computer to control each axis with extreme precision.

WRK150 will equip you with the fundamental skills necessary to operate the Shapeoko XXL CNC router and the Carbide software suite. If you ever wanted to create ornate wood carvings at the click of a mouse, this is the machine for you.
