Computer-Controlled Machining

:sparkles: Updated for 2021 evaluation standards!

  • Group assignment:

    • Test runout, alignment, speeds, feeds, and toolpaths for your machine
    • Document your work (in a group or individually)
  • Individual project

    • Make (design+mill+assemble) something big

Learning outcomes

  • Demonstrate 2D design development for CNC production
  • Describe workflows for CNC production

Have you answered these questions?

  • Linked to the group assignment page
  • Documented how you designed your object (something big)
  • Documented how you made your CAM-toolpath
  • Documented how you made something BIG (setting up the machine, using fixings, testing joints, adjusting feeds and speeds, depth of cut etc.)
  • Described problems and how you fixed them
  • Included your design files and ‘hero shot’ photos of final object

FAQ

How big is big?

Answer: Life size, big enough to show you understand many of the possibilities of CNC machining - drill, pocket, dogbones, nesting, etc.

Does it have to be wood or wood products?

Answer: No. But the lab is only responsible for providing you with a full size wood board (4x8 ft).
