CNC Rotary 4th Axis with Randy Johnson April 9-10, 2022
This weekend class is open to woodworkers of all skill levels. CNC experience is helpful but not required. The class is a hands-on workshop providing students an introduction to a variety of rotary 4th axis CNC techniques. The class will cover rotary project set up including fluting, spiral cutting, and 3D models in the round. Students will each produce at least one rotary project during the weekend. Most of the class time will be spent designing and machining projects but will also cover a variety of technical and design tips and tricks that student can apply to their class projects or future work.
A full version of Vectric VCarve software will be provided to the students for use during the class. Prior experience with this software is helpful, but not required. Students are required to supply and know how to operate a Windows 7 or higher laptop computer and a scroll wheel mouse. Students must have administrative access to their computers, so they can install the full version of the VCarve Pro software during the class.
