This class is required to use the CNC (computer controlled) SERVO Milling Machine. Bringing a laptop computer is required for this class.

We will import a 3D CAD file into Fusion360. Prep the file for transfer to the CAM workspace. Discuss the various options for tool path generation including their utility, limitations, and requirements. Options for holding down your work will be presented, including two sided work. You will then have an opportunity to run the rebuilt Servo CNC mill to cut out your part.

Each student will make their own personalized key chain fob.

Please note: You must bring a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of Fusion 360 already downloaded to that computer. This is critical as no computers are provided, and the design program does not work well with a trackpad. There is no time during the class to download the program. If you have questions or run into problems downloading the program, please use this form to contact the instructor for help.

This is a Three-session class, designed to allow you to work with the program in depth. An extensive amount will be spent demonstrating the different types of tool path implementation. A learning reference will be provided on the techniques covered in the class, including: 
  • Types of tool paths
  • Proper fixturing and hold downs
  • How to work with our new control systems

Instructor: Chris Stanley is a fourth-generation artist/ craftsman who works in a variety of media. After working for many years as a professional model maker in both architectural and design fields, he went into education. He taught computer-aided design and other classes for the Art Institute of Seattle for 19 years.
