Intro to VCarve Pro

Join Thea Eck, expert ShopBot instructor with over 5 years of experience, and learn everything you need to know about CAD designing and CAM toolpathing.

This 1-day workshop is intended for new and beginner VCarve 8.0 users. VCarve 8.0 is the official ShopBot Tools Inc. software to be used with the ShopBot CNC Router and other milling machines.

Participants will learn how to utilize VCarve 8.0’s drawing tools (the CAD) such as creating shapes, editing nodes, adding text, and offsets. They will then learn the 3 basic toolpaths (the CAM) as well as the tool database. Concepts behind CAD and CAM such as feed and speed rates will also be discussed.

This is a hands-on, project-based workshop. Each person will have their own computer station and take home workbook.

There will be a 45-minute lunch break, taken on one’s own, at noon, and two 10-minute breaks. $100.
