In this class, you’ll learn how to cut useful and interesting shapes out of sheet metal using BARN’s Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Plasma Cutter. Plasma is an ionized high temperature arc that when combined with directed compressed air will cut through metal in a wide range of thicknesses. You’ll learn how to process image files that can be imported into Fusion 360, or use designs created in Fusion 360, then post-process your work in Fusion 360 to produce G-code that will be used to command the CNC Plasma Cutter where to cut.

**This class has two prerequisites: “Introduction to the CNC Plasma Cutter” and “Introduction to Fusion 360” or comparable experience. A quick refresh of safety, start up, and shut down of the CNC Plasma cutter will be covered, but you’ll be expected to be familiar with these details. A laptop loaded with Fusion 360 is essential.
