This class on the CNC router focuses on the workflow for routing a 2D design programmed in F-Engrave. Taking a pre drawn vector graphic image, the students will create a G-code program using F-Engrave software. Each student will go through the steps of setting up the tooling and workpiece, loading the program and cutting the parts on the CNC router. Students will make a small wooden keepsake.
In the process we’ll cover,
Use F-Engrave to generate a toolpath
Importing vectorized drawings
Contours and layers
Tool selection and discussion of tool choice
Feed and Speed (use FSWizard app)
Reviewing gcode as a text file
Homing the machine
