We have been homeschooling for a few years now and I wanted to incorporate some kind of shop/vocational skills subject with them. The CNC seemed like a great way to get them involved without need to fully engage with a power tool they can’t handle.
For this first try I also wanted an excuse to build my own skills an experience with CCreate and running jobs in the machine. It truly was a learning experience with two failed jobs and my own shameful experience of changing tools in jog mode. gasp
I had them all draw up what they wanted and then we worked together to translate their ideas into something millable from svgs in the stock library and what we found online. Overall I’m pleased with where I ended up skill wise, and they love their creations.
