What you'll learn in this metal working class:

The CNC Plasma is a Maker’s best friend when it comes to cutting designs out of large pieces of sheet metal. Create custom letters for signs, cut curves and organic shapes, or easily duplicate and cut repeating patterns. The first portion of this class will be lecture based. After the lecture, students will each have the opportunity to calibrate the machine and run a test file. There will also be an opportunity for Q & A during this time.

Be prepared for some sparks and molten metal! All attendees are required to wear appropriate attire: long sleeved natural fiber shirts, long pants, closed-toe shoes (leather shoes preferred), long hair must be pulled back, no jewelry or baggy clothing.

Required Prerequisites:

The first thing you’ll need to know before taking this class is how to create a .DXF file. If you have no idea what a .DXF file is or how to go about creating one we would highly suggest taking the CorelDraw: Intro to 2D Vector Graphics class first.

Suggested Prerequisites:

Corel Draw 2D class, suggested for those without experience creating/editing vector artwork.

Equipment Rundown: 
  • Imports .dxf or .svg
  • Max material thickness: 3/4 inch
  • Bed size: 4ft by 8 ft
Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete any necessary paperwork. Our shop can be a little tricky to find so we suggest giving yourself extra time for traffic and parking. 

**Please wear closed-toe shoes. Some classes will require long hair to be tied back and no loose or baggy clothing**
