Explore Component Fabrication with Computer Numerical Control

Monday, August 5, 2019

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines are capable of almost effortlessly cutting complex designs and shapes. As such it can greatly expand the fabrication options available to a furniture builder, and the more one uses a CNC the more one discovers new ways of creating parts. Getting over the initial learning curve of CNC can be a challenge, but a CNC is really just another shop tool, a somewhat unique tool - yes, but still just a tool. Learning to exploit the capabilities of a CNC can lead to new ways of solving design problems and fabricating parts.

This class will include 4-5 design challenges that use the CNC as the primary fabrication tool. Students will work independently and collaboratively on the challenges. Instruction will include discussions on CAD modeling, tooling, machine setup, material holding jigs and CNC tips/tricks.
