An introduction to the Flow Waterjet Cutter
ABOUT THIS EVENT
The waterjet is a powerful tool capable of cutting numerous materials with incredible accuracy.
With a 10′ x 6′ bed this machine can handle huge cuts that would otherwise be impossible. And at over 60,000psi of water pressure this machine can cut virtually any material.
The course starts off with an introduction to the FlowPath software, a proprietary software package from Flow that allows you to create tool paths and dial the settings for your cut. The class then shifts to machine operations where you’ll set up the material on the cut bed, get the speeds dialed in and start cutting!
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 so if you are interested in utilizing the machine, or other parts of our facility moving forward, please ask a member of staff about membership options or check out the memberships page on our website.
