Date: Aug 19 - 23, 2019

Skill Level(s): II to III i

Instructor(s): Peter Basil

Tuition: $975
Studio Fee: $150
Registration Fee: $45

CAD drawing experience required.

Concept:

Expand your knowledge of CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) router machining in wood. Students take a deeper dive into CNC woodworking for the small shop, exploring programming, machining and fixturing at a more advanced level, which broadens capabilities. Students also examine ways to expand their skill set and improve final results and speed.

Media & Techniques:

Instruction focuses on MasterCam programming for the CNC router; some Rhino CAD help will be available as well. Students should bring ideas for test parts, as well as three-dimensional models of parts they would like to improve.

Activities:

Fundamentals of CNC router programming are reviewed. Students use CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) to cut components on the CNC router. Demonstrations and hands-on instruction occur throughout the workshop.

Faculty:

A graduate of the School for American Crafts, Peter Basil has spent several years immersed in the world of product development and digital manufacturing, working with three five-axis industrial CNC routers in a production environment. He is currently Product Design Engineer at Thos. Moser.
