What is digital fabrication? What is CNC? CAD? CAM? How does it work – and what does it do? We will answer these questions for you and many more! This class is designed to teach you how to get started operating a ShopBot (or any other brand of CNC machine) by teaching you the user interface and all of the essential processes and procedures for achieving rapid success with CNC.
