Description

February 17 – 20, 2022

ShopBot and the North Carolina Furniture School have teamed up to offer comprehensive CNC training for all skill levels. CNC classes are limited to 12 students and are held in the NCFS Computer Lab, located in downtown Farmville, NC.

*This is an advanced class, participants must have taken both levels of ShopBot Basic Training or possess demonstrable experience with VCarve Pro and ShopBot CNC equipment.

In this Master Class, we will use Vectric VCarve Pro and Vectric Aspire to design complex 3D carved hardwood chair seats, as well as turned sculpted legs, spindles, and rungs. We will prototype sculpted seats with foam on a 3 axis CNC. With an understanding of how to make the seat comfortable, you will learn to modify the designs and then machine a hardwood chair seat with the CNC machines. While those seats are  being machined we will shift our attention to the rotary indexer to machine the chair legs, spindles, and rungs.

This is a fun class that will advance your CNC skills in serious ways. You will learn CAD and CAM workflow efficiencies, 3D designing, proper furniture design, prototyping, 3D machining, and 4th axis design and rotary machining. There are only 12 seats available, so be sure to reserve you seat in this class before they fill up, and we’ll see you in the shop!
