This red tool CnC course basic will cover the safety and operation of our "Big Red" CnC machine in Makersmiths Leesburg.  During the session, students will make a take-home plaque.  Upon completion of this course, you'll be authorized to start using Big Red on your own.

We will meet in the classroom and the Big Red Room.

Pre-requisites: Bring a laptop with the program VCarve installed (optional, but it will be very helpful). You should have knowledge of vector graphics. This class will cover their conversion to G-code and safety/setup and operation of Big Red to make the object.
