My first CNC Milling Class

Today I went to the Techshop to attend a class on CNC milling. I must admit, I barely knew anything about CNC machines (or milling in general, for that matter). A lot of the vocabulary and terminology used was a bit over my head, but it was an amusing challenge.

We created a bottle opener from a thick sheet of aluminum. It turned out to be super sturdy and the finish was excellent.

Notes to self:

  • Bayshore metals is a great place in SF to get raw materials.
  • G Wizard was highly recommended by the instructor for feeds and speeds.
