Grealabs is conducting a workshop on DIY Furniture Making using CNC machines. The advent of low-cost CNC machines and powerful CAD/CAM software and low-cost processors/controllers like Arduino/RaspberryPi has made prototyping and fabrication easier than ever before. What a skilled carpenter can do, a skilled jewel smith can do, skilled sculpture, tailor, decorator, painter, etc. can do, now a CNC or 3D printer can do. So it is very important to acquire these digital fabrication skills, for students and working professionals.
This workshop will touch the basics of CNC machine software, hardware, safety aspects, and operation and teach you to make 2 sample furniture.
Topics: Using CAD software to make furniture designs, Design for CNC fabrication, CAM software to convert CAD to Gcode, CNC Machine software, setup, Cutting parts in a CNC machine and to make your own furniture.
