    CNC routers are a powerful tool in any modern maker’s arsenal. They can be used to cut, carve and shape many materials including wood, plastics, foam, cardboard, non-ferrous metals and many more. They are quite often able to produce parts more accurately and efficiently than traditional manual processes freeing up makers to design, assemble and create more.

    This sessopm will teach the safety protocols and basic operation of MakerspaceCT’s Techno Titan CNC router. 

    In the course we’ll review basic woodshop safety along with CNC router specific safety considerations. Proper tooling and material selection along with feed/speed calculations will be discussed so members are able to successfully run the router to create their projects.

    PLEASE NOTE: You must be Safety Certified in the Woodshop to take this class!
