The imagination is perennial. It seems as creatives we strive to reinvent. In the present, there seems to always be a new way of making things, a new way to empower ourselves with new knowledge. This course reveals the powerful process and workflow of CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) machining. Students will learn how to draw, 3D model, and write toolpaths for the CNC router in Fusion 360. Through this software, we will simulate cuts as a way to chart, expand and explore new forms and textures. The course will culminate in a project to be made at Anderson Ranch and mailed to students with shipping and materials covered by the studio fee. No matter your experience level with technology, this course is an excellent entry and expansion point for all creative makers.
