When most people think of CNC machines, they think of manufacturing. At Rockford MakerSpace, we aim to break that stereotype!
Ultimately a CNC machine is a tool for shaping wood, metal, or plastic. To us that sounds like something useful to an artist! Using design tools such as Adobe Illustrator or Blender, an artist can use a CNC machine to bring digital art into the physical world.
What can you make? Jewelry, molds, printing plates, sculpture, inlays, custom tools, and whatever else you can imagine.
The Rockford MakerSpace CNC for Artists class is an introduction to what is possible with a CNC. Participants will have the opportunity to operate a Tormach CNC machine to make a project they can take home.
This class is open to the public. $10 fee includes materials. No prior experience with CNC machines is required.
