Intro to CNC Routing

MakerFX is home to an Instructables X-Carve CNC router that can cut woods (both hard and soft), various plastics and non-ferrous metals like aluminum, copper and brass. Learn how to use this very powerful machine and see it in action.

Vectric’s VCarve Pro is a very powerful, but exceptionally easy to use software solution for people wanting to design and machine parts for a wide variety of CNC machines. MakerFX provides the V-Carve Pro Makerspace Edition software for member use.

Below is a video from Inventables regarding the X-Carve.  It will give you a good overview of what is possible with this machine.

If you are interested in learning more, you don’t have to wait for a class. Stop by on a Friday night for Open Make, and see the laser, 3D printers, Duinokit, X-Carve, etc.
