Fabricate your designs on the CNC Mill as you learn the fundamentals of CAM in this 4-week intensive with local artist John Sharvin.

Non-members: $360; Members: $280

Description

Take your 3D modeling skills to the next level as you learn CAD to CAM processes in this four-week intensive—all while learning to operate the CNC Mill with local artist, John Sharvin!

We’ll review Autodesk Fusion 360’s split body function as we dive into CAM functions and create a long lasting relief mold that can be used with molten glass or plastic. We’ll learn about easily machinable materials like delrin for prototyping your designs and realize the final piece in reclaimed graphite on the CNC Mill.

This course is designed for participants who have taken 3D Modeling for CNC Level 1 or who already hold a basic understanding of 3D Modeling in Autodesk Fusion 360.
