CNC ROUTER TRAINING
An introduction to the machine operations of the CNC Router
This class has a prerequisite: our VCarve Pro CAD to CAM training. If you have not completed this training yet please sign up for and complete that course before registering for the CNC Router course.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
The course introduces you to the machine operations of a 4′ x 8′ CNC Router. You’ll start off by learning the numerous features and settings of the machine by completing a full job set up. This includes setting up the collets, router bits, vacuum table and more.
This is a 3 hour class. Each student then receives an additional 3 hour window of 1 on 1 instruction where you can come back with your own material and CAD file to run your own cut. The second session will need to be scheduled separately with the instructor.
This course also serves as a certification to run the machine independently at our facility. Maketory is a membership based makerspace and you can learn more about us and our membership options at www.maketory.com
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: JERRY BEAUDRY
Originally from Chicago, Jerry’s interests in woodworking were developed at a young age with his father who was a general contractor building custom homes. When he relocated to San Diego, he became a Shipwright working in the local boat building yards building and refurbishing wooden vessels to 45 feet.
In 1999 he attended Palomar College where he refined his craft and in 2003 was asked to join the staff as an associate professor in the Cabinet and Furniture department teaching entry level classes and specialized classes in advanced table and chair making while owning and operating a successful custom cabinet and furniture business. He would later develop several advanced classes within the curriculum such as advance veneering techniques, and furniture design with CAD. In 2014 he headed up the CNC effort at the Palomar College to train designers and operators using several different wood CNC machines within the department.
