HatchSpace is offering 2 classes this month that introduce digital design and production for woodworking. With “CNC” designs are created on a computer, which then drives a router to cut out the design on wood or other materials.
Make a Stool with CNC and Fusion 360
In this intro class to digital design and manufacturing, we will break into Fusion 360, a very powerful CAD software. You will be introduced to the basic user interface and be led through the steps of creating a 3D model of a stool. During the design process we will focus on designing the piece for cutting out on a ShopBot CNC Router. You will learn the safety and set up of the CNC router and prepare the machine and a file for a cut. Once cut, we will use a router table, sander, pocket hole jig to finish and assemble the stool.
4 sessions, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 6 – 8 pm
February 17 & 18 and February 24 & 25
