ShopBot Intermediate Training

Ready to move past the basics with your ShopBot CNC? This course is designed for those who have been through our Basic Training course, or who have mastered the ShopBot basics on their own, and are looking to take the next steps.

Workshop Description:

Our 2 day, hands-on Intermediate Training is for those that are already proficient in topics covered in our Basic Training, such as 2D/2.5D CAD part design and toolpathing, 3D CAD file import, integration and toolpathing, machine setup, zeroing, and running 2D, 2.5D, and 3D files. If you haven’t mastered these topics, please complete our Basic Training (link) before signing up for this class. This intermediate training focuses on the use of Vectric’s Aspire software.

The price (per person) includes cost of materials used during creation of take-home sample projects, light breakfast, lunch, as well as snacks and refreshments both days.
